Founded in 1916 in the center of the town of Jumilla, Juan Gil, a family business, has been at the forefront of establishing the Jumilia as a (top)wine region, which has led several generations of winemakers to emerge over the decades to appreciate its incredible potential of this region. True to its origins, Juan Gil has seamlessly merged tradition and the latest technology with respect for the environment. Juan Gill is also the creator of the famous Clio and the world famous El Nido. The Celler Can Blau project aims to develop a line of high quality wines from indigenous grape varieties (syrah, Monastrell, Grenache, Cargigan). This cuvée shows the hand of Australian winemaker Sarah Morris and is a

The Can Blau is one of the beautiful wines of Cellers Can Blau and is a blend of Cariñena, Syrah & Garnacha which has had 12 months of education in oak barriques. The Cariñena and Garnacha vines used for the production of these wines have an estimated age of 25 to 40 years, the Garnacha vineyards are located at about 750 meters altitude in the area of Cornudella de Montsant on slate soils, Cariñena vineyards in Darmós and Masroig on clay soils and Syrah vineyards are on limestone soils.

The Can Blau is a full bodied wine. in the nose we smell notes of wood smoke, cigar box, incense, lavender, black cherry and plum followed by a mouth-filling, round, dense wine with excellent grip and length. It is a very complete glass for lovers of a full, firm but also very elegant wine. Definitely a lot of wine for the money and this Can Blau is an excellent accompaniment to a multitude of dishes such as rice, pasta (noodles, spaghetti, macaroni), vegetables, mushrooms, stew, sausage, pork, roast meat, red and / or white meat with sauces, grilled meats, short or medium cheeses.

If the yolk of an egg represents the Priorat, then the egg white is the Denominacion de Origin 'Montsant'. In horseshoe shape around the famous Priorat region. For several years now, the enterprising Gil family (famous with their Clio, Silver and Blue Label and of course the iconic El Nido) has owned the beautiful winery Can Blau here. The 35-year-old vineyards are planted with the typical autochthonous grape varieties: Mazuela, Syrah and Garnacha. The wines receive unanimously very high ratings from the international wine journalists.

Can Blau has the typical scarlet color of the red wines from the Priorat region, where the Montsant Designation of Origin is located. The Can Blau wines are made from the typical Montasant/Priorat grapes coming from different terroirs and all this together gives the uniqueness of the wines of Can Blau. The tannic Cariñena grape is harvested from the valleys of the clay soils. The tasty Syrah grapes grow on the steep limestone slopes. The Garnacha grape sprouts from the old and dark slate of the Priorat. The allure created by the combination of these three varieties in different proportions leads to the red wines of Cellers Can Blau.
