Priorat, in the province of Tarragona south of Barcelona, is a wine region with approximately 100 wineries. The wine area is the only one with Rioja that has been named the fine DOC (instead of DO as the rest of the wine regions of Spain are called), and many of the wine houses have received praise from Spanish and international wine magazines. We recommend visiting Priorat if you want to get a taste of wine at the best wineries in the area close to Barcelona.

Below we have compiled a list of some of the best wineries in Priorat. All the wine houses in the article take visits to the vineyard and the cellars and make private tastings.
