The De Muller winery was founded in 1851 by August De Muller and Ruinart de Brimont, a well-known family of winemakers from the Alsace, who saw that the province of Tarragona had great potential for planting vines and producing wine. For four generations the De Muller family was one of the region’s leading wine companies, both commercially and technologically. In fact, in the year 1925 they installed the first industrial refrigeration chamber in Spain, intended mainly for sacramental wines, and became suppliers to Popes from Pius X to John XXIII as well as supplying the Spanish Royal Family. In 1995, the Martorell family bought the winery and adopted the traditional methods of the region in order to achieve maximum quality in their wines.
Initially, the winery was located in Tarragona. In 1997, De Muller took a crucial step and moved to the farm Mas de Valls in Reus. They managed, among other feats, to transfer the huge foudres of more than 50,000 liters to the new location. Today, in the farmhouse, you can enjoy a day of wine tourism among these huge centenary barrels.
Currently, the De Muller winery has a capacity of 4 million liters and 200 hectares of planted vineyard from which the wines of the DO Tarragona are made. In their estates, both local and foreign varieties can be found: Macabeo, Moscatel de Alejandría, Sauvignon Blanc, Grenache, Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo and Pinot Noir.
In total, the company has 10 estates spread over the appellations of DO Tarragona, DOQ Priorat and DO Terra Alta, one of which is the Mas de les Pusses, located in the Priorat region, with 34 hectares of garnacha peluda, Grenache, Syrah, Merlot and Cariñena.
Today, De Muller continues to make sacramental wines using the traditional formula that has brought them fame, and also produces liqueurs, sweet wines and vermouths. The company exports 60% of its production to international markets and is continuously expanding.
A visit to the winery begins with a brief introduction to the company and its long history, followed by a guided tour of the vineyards and then the winery, where you can learn about the methods of wine making and see the barrels where the sacramental wines rest and admire the solera system used for the cellar’s most famous wines.
The tour ends with a tasting of five wines in the fantastic great hall. The whole visit lasts about an hour and a half and costs 6 euros per person.
Also, on request, you can reserve the space for different kinds of events, including the celebration of the famous calçotadas typical of the Tarragona province.
