The wine-making business Estriacus SL “La Perla del Priorat” (Priorat’s Pearl) is located in Molar, south-west of Priorat. Our property, Mas dels Frares, was built back in the 15th century when it was a Carthusian monastery used as a nursing home by the monks of Scala Dei. The vineyards spread throughout 22 hectares (with about 77.000 vines) of stony highlands which have been cultivated since centuries around Mas dels Frares. These lands are well known for their slate soils and for the good climate, hence the name of the business “La Perla del Priorat” (Priorat’s Pearl) since the 18th century.
