16 June is the World Tapas Day! BOOK HERE!

Tapas is are a great Spanish foodie tradition that has always been linked to wine. The tradition dates to the middle ages, when tavern keepers offered tapas alongside the wine to make sure carriage drivers had some food to offset the libations.

Nowadays, tapas have become an elaborate nosh, with myriads of combinations, ranging from simple pickles to sophisticated savouries, such as pinchos. Tapas pair wonderfully with wines.

Wouldn’t you love to try such a pairing in Priorat?

Then here’s our proposition from Gratallops: Visit Celler Devinssi to taste our artisanal DOQ Priorat wines and then enjoy some lovely tapas at Slate Wine Bar. The tapas are created by chef and sommelier Guillermo Gallará, and you’ll certainly be delighted by his creations! See the gallery below!

Green-pruning vines and eating paella in Priorat! 2, 8 and 9 June, 2022

Would you like to be a vineyard gardener for a day? In the spring, grapevines expand their foliage rapidly turning the place into a green garden, full of twigs and leaves. It certainly creates a lovely view, and still needs some tidying up… And after a good while pruning the vines, what could be better than a delicious traditional meal to recharge the batteries? Would you like to see how arròs de tros from Priorat is cooked and than savour it?

Well, now it’s time to green-prune the vines in Priorat… Have you ever heard of this? Sounds like pruning, but done when the vineyards are lush green. It’s a crucial vineyard hands-on activity that consists in preserving the best vine twigs towards the grape ripening and culling all the others. Would you like to learn how to green-prune a vine in a great company and eat arròs de tros (a traditional Priorat paella)?

From Gratallops (DOQ Priorat) and Falset (county capital), we’re inviting you to enjoy an exciting vine-and-foodie activity: green-pruning vines and eating paella.

Save the date on 2, 8 or 9 June (Thursday, Friday and Tuesday) in order to enjoy Priorat’s striking scenery and learn how to prune vines.

Thus you’ll be able to learn how to do this fun farming task! You won’t toil green-pruning the whole plot, you’ll rather master the techniques while enjoying in the lap of nature. The master class will be rewarded by a wine tasting and a paella lunch at the Mas Trucafort restaurant.

Place: Gratallops, DOQ Priorat, and Falset

Mas de les Valls (DOQ Priorat): the evolution of the brand

As many of you know, Celler Devinssi began producing DOQ Priorat wines in 2003, with the first vintage completely dedicated to the production of our small wine called “IL·LIA“.
