Celler Prior Pons

Prior Pons, a family cellar with a tradition in viticulture dating back to the 18th Century, is located in La Vilella Alta, at the very centre of the D.O.Q. Priorat.


In 2002 the cellar released its first wines, mostly produced using grapes from old vines that the family planted in the 1940s and 50s which grow between 300 and 400 meters above sea level, and are blended with wines derived from 100 year-old vines. The winery’s goal is to express Priorat’s unique personality, making wines that can only be elaborated in this region.


The wine production is very limited; only 1,800 Prior Pons bottles are produced at each vintage from just 10 hectares of vines, which enables them to just two wines. Prior Pons is the first, made from the best grapes of the cellar, and also Planets de Prior Pons, which combines grapes from both old and younger vines. Both wines offer the best characteristics of the zone: colour, freshness, potency, structure, fruit, minerality, spice and balance.

Producer Fact SheetDetails

(2009 Celler Prior Pons Prior Pons) " Inky ruby. Sexy, mineral-accented aromas of candied red fruits, violet and licorice, with a suave floral overtone. Juicy and precise, offering vibrant raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that gain sweetness with air. The mineral quality comes back on the finish, which clings with outstanding focus and tenacity. This is wine-class Priorat." 93 points, Josh Reynolds, International Wine Cellar (September 2013)
