Dido Red, elegance in the heart of Montsant

Surrounding the Priorat, the Montsant wine region offers us with Dido, an example of one of the most beautiful expressions of this long forgotten terroir. The diversity of soils on a limestone base and the grape varieties used in Dido give a Spanish red wine with an elegant and refined structure.

René Barbier and Sara Pérez, distinguished winegrowers

Both children of renowned winemakers, René Barbier Junior and his wife Sara not only make the wines of the family estates but also the wines that are the result of their collaboration. Dido rouge is one of these wines, the first vintage of which dates from 2005. The couple, who are the leading figures in a whole region, perpetuate the local wine-making traditions with an environmental and eco-responsible vision.

Dido, for lovers of harmonious red wines

A majority Grenache blend, complemented by Carignan, Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, Dido red is a wine of harmony. The bright fruit and balance of this Spanish red wine from Montsant, which is aged half in barrels and the rest in clay vats, are both delicious and pure. Dido red, a bottle for wine lovers who appreciate supple, fruity and pure wines.
