Celler Mas Doix, is in its fifth generation of winegrowers linked to Priorat. Created by the Doix and Llagostera families in 1998, Celler Mas Doix recovers a wine tradition started in 1850.
The property of the vineyards in costers, with slate floors of licorella and vines of between 70 and 105 years, guarantees the availability of a reduced but excellent raw material. The passion and perseverance of the Doix family during the last 90 years has made it possible to preserve the vineyards that today are their most precious asset.
