The name means 'Banks of the Segre' – a river which originates in the Pyrenees mountain ranges and meets the Ebro River just south of the city of Lleida. Most vineyards sit in the Segre's expansive basin. The DO was created in 1986, but has seen many evolutions since its inception, including new international varieties, adopting modern California winemaking techniques and the creation of sub-regions.
