On our Private Day Trip to Priorat from Barcelona you will visit two high quality wineries in the Priorat Wine Region. The tour will start at your hotel, where you will be picked-up by a private monibus, driver and guide and head to beautiful Priorat.
You start the winery visits with a visit to Mas Doix - one of the very best wineries in Priorat. This spectacular wine producer is located in the small village of Poboleda. Mas Doix produce fantastic wines and have received up to 98 Parker Points. The manager of the winery, Valentí Llagostera, will give your group an extended winery visit: you will see not only the wine cellar but also visit the fields where you will be able to see how the grapes are grown on ancient carignan and grenache vines on steep slopes.
At the end of the visit you will be able to enjoy the fabolous Mas Doix Vinyes Velles with an intense cherry color, very expressive aromas, intense taste, good acidity but very well balanced. The 2004 wine scored 98 Parker Points.
Next winery on the Priorat Day Trip is Clos Figueras, a small winery the the village of Gratallops. Clos Figueras is - believe it or not - an old chicken farm! Here the wine makers took over in the 1990's and since then the quality has kept rising. Today, Clos Figueras is one of the best producers in Priorat, with wines like Font de la Figuera and Clos Figueres. The style of the marvellous wines is close to the style you find in the Rhône Valley. But the extreme climate and slate soil of Priorat make the wines different. Clos Figueres 2009 got 93-96 points by Robert Parker.
After a wonderfull day in Priorat, you will be taken back to your hotel in Barcelona in your comfortable minibus.
