Ferrer Family Wines Morlanda Priorat

D.O.Q. Priorat is one of the oldest wine regions of Spain, but has only recently emerged as one of the top wine regions in the world. The microclimate and “llicorella” slate soil of this petite appellation produce wines of intense power and character. The vineyards are located in the hills of Priorat, the highest of which is Morlanda, the wine’s namesake and inspiration.
