Founded as recently as 2007, the winery is the result of a shared vision between two friends, Sergi Montala and Jordi Masdeu, to produce high quality wines from Catalonian varietals.
Set in the hills of the D.O. Conca de Barbera, just west of Barcelona and neighboring Priorat, the Mediterranean climate is moderated by altitude and coastal breezes. Conca de Barbera soils consist of lime and black slate stones (licorella), not dissimilar to that of Priorat, translating the mineral quality of the terroir into the wines.
Moli dels Capellans use biodynamic practices from vineyard to bottling, producing wines from Parellada and Trepat, grapes more commonly associated with cava and rosé production. But the ‘new generation’ of Catalonian winemakers are proving that they can make serious stuff from these indigenous varieties – Moli dels Capellans is no exception.
