In Catalonia for over 2,000 years vines have been cultivated to produce wine. Rome particularly appreciated those produced in Tarragona and Alella. And vines were planted almost everywhere, even in the Pyrenees, before the phylloxera plague spread from this mountain range in 1879 and ravaged thousands of hectares of vineyards. Later, the geography of wine changed with the introduction of new varieties and techniques. A precise control of viticulture and fermentation has made Catalan vines among the most appreciated in the world.
