The Costers del Segre Designation of Origin is a mosaic made up of seven scattered throughout the entire basin of the River Segre and the Lleida Pyrenees, with the aim of grouping together and providing a unique personality for grape and wine-growing in the province of Lleida.

Our DO has well-defined characteristics that differentiate us from the others, such as our privileged location with soil of a limestone composition and a marked Mediterranean climate, featuring strong thermal fluctuations that daily and seasonally make it ideal for growing grapes.

Our wines

Throughout our DO, the traditional Macabeu and Parellada white wine varieties are predominant. This results in the white wines of the region of Costers del Segre having a classic profile, that is to say, light, fruity and acidulant. The successful acclimatization of Chardonnay in the region has opened the door to wines with more modern characteristics, both young wines or fermented in oak barrels, with a better structure and their varietal character more present.

The main red wines are Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, and Pinot Noir, but traditional varieties are also cultivated, mainly Tempranillo, Grenache and Trepat. Within the logical nuances that the land of each area gives its grapes, the red wines of the Costers del Segre DO are characterized by a powerful aroma and balanced flavour while delivering a good tannic expression, and on the palate they are tasty, ample and structured.
