The altitude of Terra Alta, located about 350 meters above sea level, Mediterranean climate with continental tendency, scarce rains and strong sunlight make wines in the region are strong, male and considerable structure. The production of the twelve towns in the region is covered by the Terra Alta certificate of origin.

Among the wines of the certificate of origin, include the white grenache, a variety that defines the appearance of oenology of Terra Alta, because a third of world production of the grapes comes from vineyards of Terra Alta. To distinguish these wines, the Regulatory Council of the DO (certificate of origin) has created the label "Un Terra Alta Garnatxa Blanca 100×100”, reserved for higher quality bottles made exclusively with this variety.

The "Terra Alta Garnatxa blanca" are distinguished by their yellow color, with shades that swing·from pale·to golden, a subtle nose and high intensity of flavors in the mouth. A color and a flavor that, away from stereotypes, do not give up authenticity that gives its Mediterranean origin.

Red wines, in general, are powerful and rugged, a very loud colour, with some fruity aftertaste, and they are made with "carinyena" and "garnatxa" classic variety. The grape harvest, in the middle of September, is a good excuse to get close to Terra Alta.

Nowadays, the wines of Terra Alta are one of the most prized wines of Catalonia . Its quality has been recognized in prestigious national and international competitions, and rigorous specialized guides give them high marks.
