A treasure trove of Priorat landscapes
Rocks and woodland, unfathomable natural springs, sunny, steeply sloping traditional “coster” vineyards and crowning them all, is the Masia or Farmhouse with its old underground cellars. It is solidly built, standing tall and protected by the nearby Sarraí Mountain. A dream has come true in this far corner of the area known as “Historical Priorat”. It is framed by the limestone cliffs of the Montsant and Llaberia Mountain Range, caressed by the Serè wind blowing in from the north and the Garbinada sea wind from the south-east, this place can only be understood as a single unity, a unique estate.
At 350 metres above sea level, Mas d’en Gil covers an area of 125 hectares (309 acres) of land within the municipal area of Bellmunt del Priorat in the southern area of the Denomincació d’Origen Qualificada Priorat (Priorat Qualified Designation of Origin). We could say that the estate, spread over five valleys is a scale model of this mountainous region known as the Priorat. It is a region filled with steeply sloping slate-based hillsides, Mediteranean woodland, interspersed with vineyards of Garnatxa (Grenache) and Carinyena (Carignan) and by olive, hazel and almond groves.
