Vinícola del Priorat is an original winery in Priorat, located in Gratallops, 150km southwest of Barcelona.
The history of Vinícola del Priorat, started in 1917 with the cooperativist movement. In 1991, four cooperatives took the decision to build the current installations and join forces in a single cooperative. The current Vinícola del Priorat is the merger of the cooperatives from El Lloar, Gratallops, La Vilella Alta and La Vilella Baixa.
The owners are 125 members and between them they have around 205 hectares of vineyards, distributed in more than 300 small parcels, located in all four villages. The production of grapes is around 400.000 kg of red grapes (main) and white grapes, representing the 10% of the total production in the Priorat DOQ. The management of the cooperative is professional, we take the decisions and work to offer the best result to the members.
This year, Vinicola del Priorat complies 100 years. Our main business are wine and olive oil, but as the social face is in our DNA, we manage a small bank to offer services to our members. Our shop at La Vilella Baixa is a mini-market for the population (only 145 people living there), furthermore, we rent & work the vineyards of our older members in order to keep their land worked out, important point for the members of the Cooperative.
