PRIORAT

Priorat is a little jewel hidden amongst the mountains, with the magnificent view of the Sierra del Montsant as a backdrop. For centuries, its families have been working on, and farming their vineyards on the steep mountainside.

Its loose “llicorella” (slate) soil leaves space for the roots to feed its fruit, the grape. The microclimate of the Priorat, small scale production, careful grape selection and artisan production add up to an exquisite product.

Picturesque villages, stories of authentic farming people, a sublime Carthusian monastery and the beautiful natural surroundings make this an incomparable area to enjoy 2 of our trips.
