The vineyard and nature coexist in the Serra del Montsant Natural Park.
Come meet the spectacular landscapes of the Natural Park of the Serra de Montsant while you enjoy a route through vineyards. Let yourself be seduced by a territory where men have fought against the hardships of the land, a climate of contrasts and the diversity of the soil to produce wines of the highest quality.
Get to know this territory where wine is synonymous of life and of eﬀ ort, tenacity and illusion. Proof of this has been the importance of cooperati ve work and the growth of the number of wineries in recent years, some of them being true architectural gems, also known as wine cathedrals. In a very short time the wines of the DO Montsant have managed to gain the respect and admirati on of world-wide experts for their quality and strong personality.
The wine route can be combined with other proposals, such as sport practice and walks along one of the many trails that go through the beautiful natural landscapes of the region of the Natural Park of the Serra de Montsant, without forgetting its rich and varied gastronomy based in many cases on local land products.
