Escape from Barcelona for a full day, and after 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:
FOR THE 2014 SEASON:
MISERERE 2005 (red)
CLOS DE L'OBAC 2004 (red)
KYRIE 2008 (white)
DOLÇ DE L'OBAC 2006 (sweet red)
After the wine tour, a short drive through the Priorat countryside will take you to Catacurian, the only private boutique cooking hotel that specializes in teaching Catalan/Spanish cooking, where your host and chef Alicia Juanpere will guide you through a wonderful hands-on cooking class. Once completed you will sit down to an elegant and delicious three course meal of the dishes you just prepared, accompanied by wonderful Priorat/Montsant wines.
Prices start at 100€/pers.
We cater to a maximum of only 6 people per program. We want this to be a personalized experience for you!
