Wine tourism

The Terra Alta district, very close to the Ebro Delta, is the production area of exquisite wines with designation of origin marketed with the label “Terra Alta” (DOTA). It is located to the north of Els Ports Natural Park, between the Ebro River and the border with Aragon. It includes the 12 municipalities of the district. To fully enjoy and get to know the local delights, we recommend driving along the “Wine route across the Terra Alta”. The route takes you through the main producing areas, environments, sites, panoramic views, buildings and producing methods, including visits to the cellars, helping us understand every aspect related to wine culture in the Terra Alta. As the starting point you could choose Gandesa, where you will find the headquarters of the Regulatory Council of the DO Terra Alta and the modernist building that houses agricultural cooperative, designed by one of Gaudí’s disciples, César Martinell. Inside the premises of the Regulatory Council there is an area dedicated to wine and oil, which includes an interpretation centre, a shop specialising in wine and oil and a tasting room. The route then passes through Corbera d´Ebre, Vilalba dels Arcs and Pobla de Massaluca. Along the route, before arriving in Batea we find the “Massalocà”, a stunning viewpoint with far-reaching panoramic views of the vineyards. After leaving Batea, the municipality with the largest amount of vineyards in the district, heading towards Caseres, we reach the spectacular viewpoint of “Planas de Almudèfer”. From Caseres to Bot, and the route finishes in Pinell de Brai, where we can admire the building of the cooperative cellar, also designed by César Martinell, on whose façade shines a splendid ceramic frieze by Xavier Nogués. The route is 70 km long and it is advisable to do it by car.
