"Salanques" is the name of the area where the 80 year old vineyards are in Priorat, close to the village of Poboleda. Mas Doix (pronounced "mahss doysh") also keeps yields low and only picks the best grapes.
Celler Mas Doix is a winery created by the Doix & Llagostera family in 1998; it is the reinitiation of a tradition that began in 1850. The gold medal obtained in the Universal Exhibition of Barcelona in 1888 and the silver medal won in the Universal Exhibition of Paris in 1878, remind us of the passion with which Juan Extrems Doix, Juan Doix's grandfather, used long ago to look after the vineyards and produce his wines.
The phylloxera outbreak did not mean the end of the family's vineyards. They were replanted with Garnacha and Cariñena varieties, native to the Priorat region, thereby maintaining the growth of the vineyards while the production was sent to the co-operative in Poboleda until it was produced in our winery. Nowadays, we are laboring with love and passion for the fruit grown in our hundred-year-old vineyards so we can produce great wines.
