PRIVATE PRIORAT WINE TOURS

Where wine connoisseurs go…

Are you REALLY into wine? You don’t mind driving 2 to 3 hours off the beaten path to taste some exceptional wine? Budget is not an issue if the experience is worth it when it comes to tasting?

Connoisseurs started becoming interested in the Priorat wine region some years ago, and the mass public is just starting to hear about it now. The slate and quartz soil of these terroirs produces wines of a strong personality and surprising beauty. The sharpness of its rocky landscape adds value to the trip.

We work with a selection of small family owned award-winning Priorat wineries. But if you have a favorite brand that you would be interested in visiting, we are open to organizing your custom Priorat wine tour there (as long as they accept visitors).

Come discovering with us the cellars that one day will be as famous as the ones in La Rioja…

THREE DIFFERENT WINE TOUR OPTIONS

NON-GUIDED OPTION

For very independent travelers and people with shorter budgets. Our Priorat itinerary visiting a great family-owned winery, without the assistance of a private tour guide from our team – just our English-speaking driver. More information in the FAQ section below.

STANDARD OPTION

Same visit of the Non-Guided option, but with the assistance of a private tour guide during the entire day. Your guide will be there at all times to answer all your questions and take care of all the details for you to make sure your day goes seamlessly.

LUXURY OPTION

Are you looking for an incredibly unique experience and budget is definitely not a limitation? Let us take us to a very exclusive winery in Priorat that produces exceptional wines. They aren’t interested in receiving the average tourist that isn’t prepared to appreciate the subtlety of their products, which is why they have purposefully raised the price of their tastings to match their wines.

If that’s what you are looking for, you’ll be welcomed at this award-winning cellar and by the owner, then follow him around the winery to learn about their high end wine making, their company philosophy and the history of Priorat, Spain. See the boxes of selected wines reserved by the best Michelin starred restaurants from Spain and abroad.

The visit ends with a spectacular wine tasting guided by the owner, but the experience continues with a gourmet 4-courses menu at his favorite local restaurant.

WINE TOUR FAQ

  • OUR PRIORAT DAY TRIPS RUN: Every day.
    WEEKENDS:
    Family Owned Cellar: During the weekends the cellars only offer tours in Catalan or Spanish, as that’s when the local public can go. Your guide will be translating for you in a low voice, in order not to disturb the rest of the visitors. Groups might also be larger than during the week, too, for the same reason.
  • WINE TOUR LENGHT: 10 hours .
  • STARTING TIME: 8.30AM. This starting time is not flexible.
  • WHERE DO WE MEETWHERE DO WE END? Anywhere you want, within Barcelona city limits.
  • IS THERE A LUNCH STOP? Yes.
  • HOW DO WE MOVE AROUND? Rides in Mercedes car or minivan for upto 6 of you + guide & dedicated driver. Walking during the wineries visit.
  • HOW SHOULD WE DRESS? Inside the wine cellars there’s a constant temperature of around 59ºF (15ºC). A light jacket is recommended in the Summer.
  • HOW DOES THE NON-GUIDED OPTION WORK? In the non-guided option you are on your own. Your English-speaking driver might provide light conversation during the rides from Barcelona to Priorat and back, but no detailed explanations of the area. At the wineries you’ll be shown around by the winery staff. They are well trained, but their English level is usually not as fluid as our guide’s. You’ll ultimately be responsible for getting back to the car at the agreed time, or you’ll risk being charged extra hours if you are late.
  • DISCLAIMER: We might be sharing the visit of the winery with other people, as it ultimately depends on the cellar. Sometimes private tour supplement is available – ASK US.

TAILOR YOUR DAY TRIP TO PRIORAT FROM BARCELONA

This tour is aimed at people that are seriously into wine and don’t mind long car rides to enjoy extraordinary wines, even if that implies a considerable money investment.

If you are traveling with kids, this tour is not a good choice. If you want a  wine tour that is also kid-friendly, consider booking our wine and chocolate tour, or a Montserrat and Wine tour, both taking you to the Penedes area, that is closer to Barcelona.

If you have walking issues or use a wheelchair, take into account that there are stairs to get to the cellars in most wineries and we might not be able to provide an adapted tour. We suggest you choose one of our Penedes tours, where the cellar offer is wider and some cellars are wheelchair friendly.

If you’d rather have a shorter day or have a lower budget, check out our half day Penedes wine tours and our full day options.
