* Many wineries in Priorat are not officially open for visits, but at times things can be worked out. Others, including Álvaro Palacios and Clos Erasmus accept absolutely no public visits.
Also, with a standard day, three visits are possible but it is a fast-paced day. For people who want to spend more time exploring, there is the option to do just one in the morning and one in the afternoon while tasting more wines during lunch.
** Lunches are at the best restaurants in the region with lengthy tasting menus. If desired, there are other options that can be enjoyed with a reduced price.
