Històries i llocs

Sunday 6th june the project Històries i Llocs will be presented at the El Masroig winery in Priorat.

The project, initiated 2 years ago, looked at the importance of seemingly superficial individual stories in the understanding and definition of a territory. These stories put together build an image of a social landscape without nostalgia nor official branding.
A selection of 30 stories will be printed individually on 5000 specially produced wine labels -the region's being intrinsically linked to wine production and becoming increasingly famous for its Montsant and Priorat wines. The stories will be disseminated with the bottles.

The project was commissioned by Idensitat and Priorat Centre d’Art with the collaboration of the D.O. Montsant, the El Masroig and the Aibar wineries.
