Clos Mogador

View Winery Website

Clos Mogador is named after a novel written by René’s great aunt called “Les Gens de Mogador” describing her family’s life at the foot of Mont Ventoux. The story was subsequently televised and became famous in France. René’s first vintage was 1989 – a wine that still shows considerable ageing potential. Since then, Clos Mogador has established its position as one of the most exciting and prestiguous red wines from Spain, and in recognition René has recently been awarded the Order of Agricultural merit by the Spanish government.

With his dynamic team of vineyard workers René also farms vineyards for friends who, encouraged by René’s enthusiasm for Priorat, have purchased a few hectares on the surrounding hills. The best known of these is Clos Erasmus which is made by René in his cellars for Daphne Glorian. He also takes care of Clos Figueras, 10 hectares of vineyards owned by Christopher Cannan. In 1998 the cellars at Clos Mogador were enlarged to cope with the small increase in production. It is amazing that such a reputation should be created in such a short space of time: a fact that augers well for the future of both Clos Mogador and the Priorat appellation.
