Description #B12 Priorat Wine Day Tour
On this signature Priorat wine tour our friendly and attentive guide picks you up early at your hotel or apartment- This tour heads south towards the Montsant Mountains near Tarragona with a breakfast stop on the way. In the Montsant mountains we navigate the winding country hill roads and admire the beautiful slate soil vineyards that characterize the Priorat wine district and steep wine terraces which can only be worked by hand.
Priorat is one of only two regions to labeled with the highest Spanish wine qualification level DOCa - Denominación de Origen Calificada which is the highest category in Spanish wine law reserved for wine regions with particularly stringent quality controls.
To sample the wines and learn about Priorat wine we visit the new Torres El Lloar winery. The Torres Priorat vineyards were planted in 1996 and the first award winning vintages were ready in 2005. The Torres Priorat winery was designed to blend in with the mountain countryside and to be as energy efficient as possible for cooling wine cellars and the wine making process. We tour the vineyard and sample two fine Torres Priorat wines.
Next stop is a visit to the cliff-top village of Siurana precariously balanced on the edges of an striking cliff outcrop with stunning views. This is also the site of the ruins of the last Moorish castle in Catalonia dating back to the ninth century. The village church from 1153 is almost as old. We see the church and walk around the village and enjoy lunch. Then tour ends here and we head back to Barcelona arriving at 7.30 – 8 PM.
