FIRST WINERY REGISTERED IN THE D.O.Q.PRIORAT
1942 witnessed the making of Cecilio Winery’s first wine, although it was not registered with the Regulatory Council of the Designation of Origin (or wine appellation) of the Priorat until the year 1954.
The reason why it took so long was due to the fact that, although the Wine Statute, which was established in 1932 by the Ministry of Agriculture, already recognised the Priorat as a wine region that needed to be protected, the socio-political circumstances of the time at the end of the Civil War hindered the approval of the first rules and regulations of the D.O. Priorat. These rules and regulations were not published in the official state bulletin (B.O.E) until the summer of 1954.
Despite this, Cecilio Vicent was the first producer who registered his winery with the Regulatory body, making it the first winery registered with the Priorat wine appellation.
Currently the number of wineries registered has already topped 100.
