Some real bargains can be found for high quality wines like Priorat, Terra Alta and Monsant from this beautiful region of Eastern Spain known as Catalunya.
When taking wine tours in Priorat, Terra Alta and Monsant, you’ll see the ‘Real Spain’ and benefit from Cellar door prices which are very reasonable & particularly tempting when witnessing the process from vine to barrel to bottle.
Catalunya is the single biggest wine producing province in Spain, if you drive the 200 km’s from Barcelona to the south most part of the province you pass through 7 different DO’s including the prolific Penede, Cava regions and the world famous DOC Priorat.
In Spain there are 120 Denominations of Origin (recognised as good or unique wine growing regions), but only 3 DOC’s (DO Calificada), awarded to regions that have the potential to make wines of exceptional quality, the Priorat is one of these 3.
