The playful label adorning this bottle belies the impressive nectar you’ll discover after pulling the cork. Produced by the Cannan family, owners of Clos Figueras, this wine is a delicious introduction to the style and profile of Spain’s Priorat appellation. With a winemaking heritage originally dating back to Roman times, one can only imagine that these dramatic cliffside vineyards proved too challenging and too expensive a place to make wine – and has only reemerged over the past couple of decades as a preeminent wine producing region of Spain.

Espectacle is a 100% Garnacha red grown in the Montsant DO of Spain – adjacent to the celebrated wines of Priorat – and is owned by Réné and Isabelle Barbier (Owners of Clos Mogador in Priorat), Fernando and Marta Zamora (Oenologists and teachers at University of Tarragona), and Charlotte and Christopher Cannan (Owners of Clos Figueras in Priorat). Here, on the highest elevation site in the appellation, we find the source for what has become a true “nectar of the gods”.
