Tarragona DO Temperature, Rainfall and Sunshine

Tarragona is one of the largest of Catalonia's wine DOs with the right soils and climate to produce anything from young red, rosé and white wines to others approaching good port in their style and maturity. This was its best-known wine in other centuries.

Currently the production area extends through 73 municipalities located mainly in the regions of Camp de Tarragona and part of the Ribera d´Ebre.

Today its full-bodied aromatic whites, which make up nearly three-quarters of production, and younger red wines are finding their way on to the market.
