In 1979 Carles Pastrana and Mariona Jarque recovered the family winemaking tradition and started off on a long adventure aimed to rescue the old Carthusian wines in the heart of the lands that were once under the dominion of the priors of Scala Dei, a monastery located in the Catalan region of El Priorat. Carles and Mariona created the properties of Clos de l’Obac and Miserere, replanting vines along the banks of the river Siurana in the southern pre-coastal area of Catalonia, and established the Clos de l’Obac Winery. They began to make their first wines in 1989, reaching an important milestone when the World Wine Guide declared CLOS DE L’OBAC to be one of the world’s 150 best wines.Use our Gratallops online travel route planner to visit Clos de l'Obac on your trip to Gratallops, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

We wanted to try one of the original Priorat wineries and were not disappointed! The tour was very personable and learned a lot about the history of Priorat and the wines were exceptional!
