Climate

You are here

The relative isolation with respect to the influence of the sea and, at the same time, the protection offered by the sierra de Montsant from the cold northerly winds, give the area of the DOQ Priorat unique climatic conditions. These are marked especially by the remarkable thermal changes between day and night. So, in the summer months you can achieve minimal temperatures of 12 degrees, while the maximum can be up to 40 degrees, although the rocky surface of the earth can get much higher values. The average annual temperature ranges between 14 and 12 degrees, from the lowest area to the foot of Montsant. 

The average annual rainfall is between 400 and 600 litres per square metre, a bit higher as we move towards the north.
