Bodegas Concavins (Clos Montblanc)
When Opimian first selected this high-quality producer as a supplier the bodega was a small, ugly concrete block making great wines. Over the years, Luis Carbonell-Figueras, the owner and one of Spain's leading businessmen, has lavished increasing care and extra funding upon this trend settingproject.Bodegas Concavins is based in Barberà de la Conca in northern Catalonia, close to the fortified town of Montblanc. The area around Montblanc shows evidence of habitation in cave dwellings dating back to Palaeolithic times. Wine production was probably introduced to the region by ancient Romans but disappeared with the Moors. The family owned winery is also close to Poblet Monastery, which was founded by Cistercian monks from France in 1151 and was hugely significant in the region. It is where many kings and queens from Aragon were buried over centuries.
