Costers del Segre

DO Costers del Segre
History
The inland character of the Costers del Segre region, far from the sea, has meant that for centuries the area has been far from the marketing routes.

Innovations in grape varieties and production methods. It was the first place in Catalonia where the varieties of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and chardonnay, for example, were introduced. As well as, the native varieties, and the Californian vinification techniques were adopted.

First of all, in 1983 Jaume Siurana, director of Incavi, and Manuel Raventós Artes, general director of Codorniu and Celler de Raimat, considered that the excellent wine quality of the counties of Lleida and the area tradition needed to be overseen by a regulatory council.

Secondly, in 1986 the DO Coster del Segre was set up with five subzones.

Finally, it was not until 1998 that two more subzones joined, Pallars Jussà and Segrià.
Climate
The area of the denomination is diverse with changed geological and climatic characteristics. The connecting link is the middle basin of the river Segre, between the Pyrenees and the Ebro river. The climate is inland and dry, far from the maritime influence and marked by high insolation, low rainfall and persistent humidity from winter mists. The vineyards are between 200 and 1,100 m above sea level. The floor is sand-covered limestone, with a great uniformity throughout the denomination. The subzones of Artesa and Pallars are the most northern, with the highest vineyards. Raimat, at the eastern end, has a mild relief and continental climate. The Segrià subzone is characteristic of dry land. Les Garrigues and Valls del Riucorb are arid lands.
