Providing the best Culinary Vacations and giving our guests lasting memories and a wonderful experience......since 2003


Escape for a full day Barcelona city Break. Take a relaxing 2 hour train ride South along the coast, arrive at a beautiful and unspoilt countryside just two hours from the city: El Priorat, Catalonia's “Tuscany”.....

The exceptional and world class wines of this area are yours to discover, as we take you to the Clos de l'Obac winery in Gratallops. The visit consists of a private guided tour of the facilities, conducted by a family member, during which they will explain the history of their winery, the Priorat wine attributes and the unique vinification process they use at Clos de l'Obac. When the tour ends, you will enjoy a tasting of the winery’s top four labels. In an effort to provide their visitors with wines that will correctly portray the outstanding quality and aging capabilities of what they produce, they do not serve the latest vintages during the tasting, but instead offer you the one's that they consider at their earliest age for being fully appreciated. This is truly a unique opportunity to taste some world class wines in a spectacular surrounding at one of Priorat's best wineries. The vintages of each of the wines you will taste is the following:
