Cellers Scala Dei (whose name in Latin means Ladder of God) was founded in 1163 by the order of Carthusian monks who first introduced vines into Spain’s now fabled Priorat. The name Priorat also owes its name to the monastery’s work. Priorat is derived from the Latin word “Prior” for the head of the Carthusian monastery that founded the first winery in the village of Scala Dei.
Scala Dei grows all of its grapes on the estate and makes three special Priorat wines: Scala Dei Negre, Scala Dei Prior, and Scala Dei Cartoixa. Scala Dei Cartoixa (this month’s feature) is the winery’s most illustrious wine. It is produced only in the finest vintages and ages to perfection.
