We have a history
Mas de l’Abundància is located in the region of Priorat (Tarragona) and belongs to the D.O. Montsant. Up until the disentailment, in the 1830s, it belonged to the Prior of Scala Dei (the property still has three magnificent landmarks with the same boundaries of 1790). It had previously belonged to the Dukes of Cardona and Entenza, who gave it to the Prior on the 27 January 1727. It was always was a self-sufficient estate, with planted vines, olive trees and a vegetable garden that allowed for its own subsistence.
The estate takes its name, back from the fifteenth century, to the excellent geographical location and to the quantity and quality of its products. The soil type is “llicorella” (Tertiarycoal) and alluvium from the Quaternary; it has its own spring water and is located between the Siurana River and the old village of Les Pinyeres, place of country worship, where from immemorial times the virgin of the same name is revered.
The current winery was created in 2002 by the del Rio Mateu family with the dream of returning to the origins and follow an unbroken family tradition for generations, with a desire to produce a wine of “terroir”. From the beginning the objectives were putting effort, faithful dedication to the cultivation of the vine and extreme care in wine-making.
Since 1995, when the project began, the two mottos are: “You can be humble but you should be excellent” and “Not only well made, but also pretty“.
