Priorat Wine Tour
Priorat wine tour.
Priorat is one of Spain’s top wine regions and the only region in Catalonia with the highest classification level (DOCa). The winemaking tradition in the region is centuries old, but it’s only since the 1990s that it has become world-renowned for the quality of its red wines. The landscape of Priorat is key to understanding its wines… a massive mountain amphitheatre and slate soils provides a unique paradise for red wine grapes like Garnacha and Cariñena. Neighbouring Montsant, which has been a DO only since 2001, is the ‘junior cousin’ of Priorat, and produces wines in a similar style. Just 1½ hours drive from Barcelona, Priorat and Montsant are must visits for red wine lovers.
