René Barbier has kissed the priorat, he is undoubtedly considered THE pioneer of this wine region.
He recognized in the 1980´s as one of four winemakers the potential of this wine-growing region and tirelessly turned to the use of the same. René Barbier and his wife Isabelle persistently worked on the quality of their initially small production. Their 20 hectares of vineyards are planted with Garnacha, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon – some of which are very old and provide the great complexity to his wines.
In Gratallops, René Barbier, with his passion for Grenache, does not hesitate to develop a spectacular wine, which soon attracted the attention of Robert Parker and was dubbed the Clos Mogador. This wine, called “Clos Mogador”, will soon become the benchmark of the wines in Priorat.
