Priorat has seen a rapid evolution since a handfull of young people came to the region in the 1980's with the conviction that high quality wine can be made here. Until then, most wines were low quality wine, and very few people believed that it would be possible to make wine in Priorat that could compete in quality with the best wines from Bordeaux, Burgundy, Barolo, etc.
