PRIORAT WINE TOUR
With vineyards across steep slopes and imposing terraces, Priorat represents some of the best “terroir-driven” wines in the world.
Priorat is one of the stand-out wine regions in Spain, with an outstanding reputation for quality. This small wine region lies to the west of Tarragona in Catalonia, and includes the municipalities of Scala Dei, Gratallops and Falset.
Ripe red and black plum, cassis and black cherry dominate the aromas of high quality Priorat reds. Signature Priorat blends from the staple Garnacha or Cariñena grapes are dominated with complex cherry and mature plum flavours. Typical aromas are wild thyme, tarragon, dill and even curry – as well as the native lavender and violets that grow throughout the mountainous countryside.
Priorat is one of only two DOCa wine regions in Spain, alongside Rioja, with the highest quality level for a wine region according to Spanish wine regulations. Which is rather surprising, as there are no trellises to be found, only bush vines planted on shale fragments, called schist or llicorella, resulting very low yield harvests.
PRIORAT IN FACTS
Priorat is around 18,000ha in area, of which 2,000ha are under vine. There are 600 growers and about 100 registered wineries. Red varieties are Garnacha, Cariñena, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot. Whites grapes are mostly Garnacha Blanca (White Granache).
