SOUTHERN CATALUNYA, PRIORAT & BEYOND
The story of Priorat is absolutely fascinating. Nowadays considered to produce the best and the most expensive strong bodied, mineral wines in the world, 30 years ago no one would have given a penny for this backwards, arid, and difficult land. But five young “hippies” came here in the late 80’s with the dream of producing the best wine in Spain and, literally from scratch, with nothing in their pocket, except great determination, they started to plant their vines and eventually produced those top bottles you can now find in the posh wine shops of Camden, or in those three Michelin stars restaurants in Shanghai.
El priorat is quintessential mediterranean landscape, but oddly forgotten by the tourist hordes. Nestled between the mediterranean sea and the mountains, these valleys will stun you by their beauty, and, most of all, by the passionate people inhabiting them.
We will discover this land and the people that made this success possible; understand the Priorat soil with Javi; taste the mineral, structured wine with the “wine guru” Carles; learn how to cook a real Paella with Conchi, and follow the natural pools trail for a once in a lifetime picnic. Make a gift to your senses, come with us to the Priorat.
