The Capafonse-Osso family has been involved in winemaking and vineyard care for five generations - from the great-great-grandfathers who once started working on the land of the Mas de Masos winery to the present day. Each generation has invested their work and knowledge in the family business, striving to create the best quality wine from the grapes harvested in these fields. Cellers Capafons-Ossó combines tradition with a search for new approaches: wines produced from local varieties are improved, experiments are carried out with new varieties of grapes. To improve the processes of growing grapes and the taste of wine, the winery uses modern control systems. Winery Capafons-Ossó owns two vineyards in the neighboring regions - Montsant and Priorat. Vineyards are very different from each other due to the amount of sunshine, weather conditions, grape varieties grown, and historical and geographical conditions.

Montsant is a wine-growing region in Catalonia, in northern Spain. The moderately hilly area was formerly part of the Tarragona wine region. However, local growers believed that the local Alpine vineyards had earned recognition as an independent region. As a result, Montsant DO was created in 2001, named after the Montsant ("holy mountain") massif that adorns the landscape of the region. Montsant is located to the west of the city of Tarragona, and its territory is shaped like the letter "C" that almost completely surrounds the prestigious Priorat region. The Romans first brought grapes here thousands of years ago, and in the Middle Ages, Catholic monks continued the winemaking tradition. In the 19th century, Montsant wines also gained wider acceptance. Here the vines are well lit by the bright Mediterranean sun during the day and cooled by the relatively cool air at night. These temperature fluctuations help develop complex grape aromas while maintaining a refreshing acidity. Soil is a local feature known as "licorella"; it is rich in granite and slate. Taken together, all natural conditions form a distinctive local terroir for the wines of this particular region.
In Catalonia, DO status was first created in 1999, and it became the first regional production area in Spain, which united all vineyards not included in any of the 11 existing DOs at that time. The capital of Catalonia is Barcelona, the second largest city in Spain with one of the largest ports in the Mediterranean. Its seaside location has certainly contributed to the development of local winemaking. Catalonia has a wide variety of winemaking traditions. It is believed that the skills of viticulture were first introduced by the Phoenicians and Greeks around 400 BC. e. The Romans then expanded viticulture and the industry flourished until the Moorish occupation. Then the vineyards were abandoned or given for other purposes. Later Christians revived viticulture in the territories adjacent to the monasteries. Until the end of the 18th century, wine and spirits were among the most important exports in the region. Since then, Catalonia has established itself as a dynamically developing wine region.
