Barberà de la Conca had the first cooperative winery in Catalonia, founded in 1894 and named Societat Agrícola de Barberà de la Conca. The merger with another cooperative in the municipality produced the present company, located in a spectacular Modernista-style building by architect Cèsar Martinell.

The structure, built between the years 1919 and 1921, is one of the so-called "wine cathedrals", as the structure of the cellars is based on brick parabolic arches. It has windows to ventilate the vinification rooms as well as an area containing underground tanks. The composition and texture of the façade are unique, with stone, plaster and exposed brick.

The water tower, which reminds one of the church's Baroque bell tower the symbol of the village, was built in 1929.

The building has undergone few changes over the years, with two exceptions: the stainless-steel technology used in the winemaking process (hoppers, pneumatic presses, vessels...) and the underground cellars, located in adapted old drain corridors.

The cooperative is made up of more than one hundred members who mostly contribute indigenous grape varieties: Macabeo, Parellada and Trepat.

The tour of the cooperative winery is led by the "bodeguero", a very knowledgeable man in charge of the cellar. He loves this building and is able to shed light on the smallest detail, such as the fact that there is not a single vessel in the entire cellar that holds the same volume of liquid.

The winery features an agro-food shop that sells cava, wine and other regional products.
