Wine tourism: The World of Wine on the Costa Daurada

The Costa Daurada has six designations of origin for its wines: Priorat, Montsant, Tarragona, Conca de Barberà, Terra Alta and Penedès (the last of these shared with Alt Penedès county in Barcelona province).
During the time of the Roman Empire vineyards covered the territory we now know as the Camp de Tarragona. The grape, together with the olive, made up the majority of the agricultural landscape of what is now the Costa Daurada.
Taking advantage of the benign Mediterranean climate and the diversity of soils, different grape varieties were adapted to the varying geological and climatic conditions to produce excellent wines.
The magnificent cooperative wine cellars built in the late 19th and early 20th centuries under the influence of the Modernist style today offer you the opportunity of combining a tasting of exceptional wines with a tour of one of these beautiful buildings, which are sometimes described as “cathedrals of wine”.
Particularly outstanding among the Modernist wineries are those designed by César Martinell in various towns in Conca de Barberà, Priorat, Alt Camp and Terra Alta counties, some of which are listed as Assets of Cultural Interest. Not to be missed are those of Cornudella de Montsant (Priorat) and Pinell de Brai (Conca de Barberà).
