Mas Doix

Spain Priorato |

Mas Doix is a family-owned winery producing wines that transmit the inherent values of the vineyard and characteristic terroir of the Priorat region. The winery was created by the Doix and Llagostera families in 1998, carrying on a tradition that began in 1850. In 1888, the wine of early patriarch Juan Extrems Doix won the gold medal in the Barcelona Universal Exhibition. The outbreak of phylloxera in the late 19th century did not spell the end of the family’s vineyards. Instead, they were replanted with Garnacha and Cariñena, varieties native to the Priorat region.

For the last century, the passion and perseverance of the Doix family have ensured the health of 15 hectares of vineyards. Mas Doix’s Estate Vineyards in Poboleda are ideal terroir for growing superb grapes. Geographically, Poboleda is located in the north-eastern corner of the Priorat. It is protected by two natural barriers, the northwest-facing Montsant and the southeast-facing Serra del Mollo. Being close to both barriers, Poboleda can take advantage of the colder breeze that cools the entire valley. This lower temperature results in a long, late harvest and maturation process. The properties of the sloped vineyards, with unique llicorella slate soil and rootstock between 70 and 105-years old, produce a balanced, low-tonnage crop.
