Christopher Cannan, founder of the Bordeaux-based Europvin wine export company, had already discovered the potential of the back of the Priorat in 1983 when he was delivered a 1974 vintage bottle from the Scala Dei winery of the Hand of a small retailer in San Francisco. He tasted the wine that same night with a Californian wine producer and turned out to be excellent valued at $ 4.00 per bottle!

Shortly after Mr. Cannan met Manuel Peyra, owner of Scala Dei, he began exporting his extraordinary wines to several countries, including the US and Japan. At that time, Scala Dei was the only private property of the Priorat that exported its wines abroad.
Some time later, in 1988, Christopher met Álvaro Palacios at the Wine Experience in New York. Álvaro informed Christopher of his plans and invited him to dinner in Logroño, where he enthusiastically explains the project for the production of wines from old vines in the Priorat. Álvaro introduces Christopher to René Barbier of Clos Mogador. A few weeks later René appeared in Bordeaux with his old Peugeot and some samples of his Clos Mogador. At first Christopher was skeptical: the wine was excellent but the price was high for an unknown product. However, a couple of years later Christopher decided to show the wine to Robert Parker, in one of his usual tastings at the Europvin office in Bordeaux. Parker soon wrote an article showing his enthusiasm and it was after he published his subsequent broadcast in "The Wine Advocate", with an exceptional score, that the market finally realized what was happening in this remote corner of Catalonia. Since then, Europvin has been exporting Clos Mogador wines and other Priorat wines to numerous countries in North America and Asia. The Priorat has not looked back. Today more than 2000 hectares are in production and 96 wineries are sending their wines worldwide.
