The dry, hot heat of the Seré wind enters the Priorat from the west along the Ebro River basin. It moves through Molar and the western part of Bellmunt and travels north, where it is trapped by the Montsant and dissipates. It appears like a haze, leaving its dry touch on everything it passes. The force of the Garbinada resists the dry heat, creating a corridor of moderation in the middle.

Seré

Garbanida

The Garbinada winds, also known as Marinada, bring cooling breezes from the Mediterranean Sea. They keep the continental heat of the Seré wind from penetrating the region. They also bring moisture-rich fog, which is very important at the end of the summer when it is most dry. The soil absorbs the water so the vines can continue to gather the flavors the Priorat is known for.
