terracesTo simply say that Priorat is striking with its terraced vineyards, medieval villages, and rugged natural landscape is an understatement. The scenery is matched only by the world class wines that emerge from old and new vineyards that produce incredibly small amounts of grapes each year and in doing so make incredibly elegant, nuanced wines.

Note that the following private wine tours and tastings are sample itineraries and each tour will be custom designed to the client. Multi-day tours are also available. Learn more about staying in Priorat hotels.
