Mas Alta was founded in the village of La Vilella Alta at the end of the nineties (1999) by two Belgian families (Lambrecht and Vanhoutte), with the technical assistance of Michel Tardieu, the eminent French oenologist. They were neither the first nor will they be the last to come over from other countries and establish themselves in this highly-esteemed Catalan region, enthralled by the exceptional nature of this terroir. Although typically Priorat, Mas Alta wines have always however been characterised by a particular, recognisable character: wines with a special warmth, profoundness and elegance.
The Mas Alta hallmark is stamped on all its wines, as is their undeniable and sincere Priorat character, true for both reds and whites —the latter still generally unknown, due to the small amounts produced, but boding a very promising future. Another of this winery's merits is its wide range of prices, offering us the fantastic, mighty Els Pics, the most affordable and accessible, right up to the powerful, balsamic La Creu Alta, their most select cuvée. All equally of superior quality.
