This wine tasting long weekend is based in the village of Falset, the capital of Priorat with restaurants and wine bars to enjoy in the evenings. Falset is an ancient village steeped in wine making history and is ideally located to visit the region and we have chosen a comfortable B&B in the centre if the village.
Day One – The tour starts in Barcelona where we pick you up on Friday morning and take the short journey to the Penedès area for a Cava wine tasting experience. Today we will visit a family owned domaine producing excellent sparkling and still wines. Lunch will be at a family ran restaurant where you will eat some of the best traditional cuisine accompanied by local Penedès wine. After lunch we head to the Priorat to settle into our B&B.
Day Two & Three – On day two we start our two day tour of the Priorat wine region. Here the landscape is breath-taking with steep hills and mountains facing in all directions. There are still some vines planted the traditional way on the slopes but a great deal of investment has allowed fantastic terraces to be build and the vines follow the contours of the land giving a structured and architectural feel to the landscape.
During the tour you will learn how this wine region was almost lost, how it was revitalised and how it came to be one of only 2 DOCa in Spain, the other being Rioja. For the purposes of this tour we have divided the region into 2 segments and will tour the south-west on day one and the north-east on day two. We have chosen 4 very different producers to take you to, each with a different approach. You will visit one of the oldest cellars in the region and some of the most modern, all with very forward thinking wine making at the heart of them.
Food is an important part of this trip and we have selected two superb restaurants in Priorat where you will taste Catalan food at its best. We have also arranged olive oil tasting and a visit to the Priory that the region is named after.
This tour will be led by Carlos Lluch who was born in Barcelona and speaks therefore Catalan and Spanish and also perfect English. Carlos has led tours in the Penedès and Priorat regions on several occasions and very knowledgeable about the areas and the wines and is looking forward to sharing his passion with you
