Most of the wine regions recognized as designations of origin (DOs) in Catalonia are located in the province of Tarragona and its surrounding area, and one of them, the Priorat region, is one of only two qualified DOs in Spain. The climate and orography have made the wines from this land a prized asset: a valued product that has attracted the interest of businesspeople and consumers all over the world.
And it is around this traditional sector that a benchmark centre has been created, a centre that includes unique knowledge generation and transfer structures in the viticulture and oenology sector as a major key to success.
The Campus of International Excellence Southern Catalonia (CEICS) features:
