Purgatori

As far back as 1780, the monks of the Montserrat abbey carried out their penance at the Desterrats estate. The area was known for its extreme climate and harsh conditions.

Its inland location far from the sea has for centuries sidelined this area from world markets, producing wines with its own characteristic elements.

Innovations in grape varieties and production methods have recently been introduced. It was the first place in Catalonia where the varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay were introduced, alongside its native varieties, and also “California” winemaking techniques were adopted.
