Wine from Costers del Segre

Where is Costers del Segre

The most unusual feature of this DO is that the land it covers stretches over the whole of Lleida province, from the Pre-Pyrenees district of Tremp to the undulating, dry topography found in the mountainous Garrigues area. The region has therefore been divided up into 6 sub-zones: Pallars Jussà, Segrià, Raimat, Artesa de Segre, Vall del riu Corb and les Garrigues.

The wines of this DO, founded in the mid-1980s, are making their presence felt each year, not just because of their quality, but also based on the innovative and avant-garde methods used in wine making and due to the blending of foreign varieties with local grapes. Consequently, they range from Garnacha, Cariñena and Macabeo, to Viognier, Müller-Thurgau and Pinot Blanco - in a conscious effort to make the region's profile stand out as different.

Although it is difficult to give a clear definition of climate and soil, as the DO takes in areas with such contrasting geographical features and the vineyards are so scattered, generally the climate is continental with a lack of rainfall. Most of the vineyards are situated on the Lleida plain or in valleys with gentle mountain relief where the soil is brownish-grey limestone and poor in organic matter.
