Situated in the heart of Gratallops, the house is literally set on a winery that is functional boasting a spectacular 300 years old underground cellar, with ideal conditions for ageing the Clos Figueras range of wines.
The sweeping views from the estate over the Ebro Valley and the mountains beyond are spectacular. Behind looms the emblemic Montsant mountain range and the famous “Hermita” hill and vineyard. Being open to the Ebro Valley the estate benefits from the cool breezes coming up from the Mediterranean, slowing down the grape maturation and of enormous benefit to the quality and style of the wines produced.
Approximately 135 olive trees on the estate, some more than 300 years old, contribute to the production of the magnificent Clos Figueras Extra Virgin Olive Oil with the prestigious Siurana Appellation of Origin.
In 1997, Christopher Cannan with his wife Charlotte, purchased Clos Figueras, an 18 hectares estate, just to the north of the reputed village of Gratallops in the heart of the best production zone of the Priorat DOQ. Already with the 2001 vintage, Robert Parker awarded Clos Figueras with 96 points and repeated the same outstanding score for the 2005 vintage. In 1978 Christopher Cannan started in the wine business in Bordeaux as a based negociant company , specialized in the export of top quality wines from all parts of France, Spain, Italy and Portugal. In recognition to his efforts on behalf of the wines of France, Christopher was made a “Chevalier de l’Ordre du Mérite Agricole” by the French government in 1999.
