How’s the grape harvest and wine travel? (Celler Devinssi, DOQ Priorat)

Definitely, 2020, baptised by Hurricane Gloria, will forever be etched in our memory.

The disastrous effect of the Covid-19 has been noticed here in  Priorat. Three months with no tourists, with no people in the street. Of course, with a minimum risk of virus rebound… Learn more

We’re lucky to have been able to take care of the vineyards: whole spring spent alone with nature, with an uncertain future, toon…

This year, the vineyards have needed a lot of human presence… The endless spring rains have caused the plague called mildew to spread throughout the vineyards: a fungus that dries the grapes… Learn more… 

We have had some losses of Carignan (Samsó) and Red Grenache, but if we zoom out to the DOQ Priorat level we have no right to complain. The careful dedication during the most complicated season in terms of weather and epidemiology and a some luck have made this 2020 grape harvest possible: Grenache and Carignan in very good condition, healthy and juicy Cabernet Sauvignon… Meanwhile, after a dry and sunny august, the harvest has been somewhat early and very dynamic.

A morning in the vineyards. 10am wine tastings at a 20% discount!

“Si del dia vols profit, que no et trobi el sol al llit”. A Catalan saying. (“The early bird catches the worm”… or maybe the wine?)

We have a new proposal for those of you who are able to get up earlier to enjoy a wine tasting in the vineyard.

On the one hand, we see the current demand for our wine tastings and, on the other hand, we must stick with the safety rules against Covid-19, which force us to limit the visitor count per group.

Therefore, for your safety, we suggest that you also take advantage of the 10am to 12 noon time slot to visit Celler Devinssi. To reward early-bird visitors who want to turn up at 10am, we offer you a 20% discount on the price of any type of visit you choose. It also applies to gift vouchers (ask us for the online shop discount code).

Into the bargain, early birds will have a 5% discount on the price of wine purchased at the cellar door.

The promotion is not cumulative. Valid until 31 December 2020.

Stay healthy and enjoy wine!  (IN MODERATION)

P.S. If you feel like starting at 9am, let’s haggle the discount! We’ll surely find common ground 🙂

The new format of our wine tasting with pica-pica (local nibbles)

Many visitors ask to taste wines paired with local products.

Over time, observing how this experience works, we’ve come up with the exact list of ingredients you generally like.

Here they are: fuet, jamón, cheese, Arbequina olives, pa amb tomàquet i oli, nuts.

Now, with the new safety rules, we serve these nibbles in individual lunchboxes.

Here are a couple of photos. Do you fancy it?

We also have the wine-and-food pairing option for vegetarians and vegans. It includes vegan sausage and cheese. For vegetarians, it can include sheep, goat or mixed cheese.

Please remember that any wine tour should be booked at least TWO DAYS BEFOREHAND

Wine tourism in Priorat: Celler Devinssi reopens its doors sticking to safety measures

While the world keeps contending with the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, Priorat has reached phase 3 of the de-escalation.

We suppose that wine tourism recovery to the same levels will be gradual and always on the alert for health safety.

We are very excited to announce that we are reopening the cellar doors to welcome you here in the Priorat. Did you feel like leaving home? Going on an excursion, tasting wines, viewing some unmatched scenery. Scenery that has been waiting for you uncomplainingly…

Obviously, new safety measures have come to wine tourism. Tastings have new rules to ensure that you are protected throughout the experience.

At Celler Devinssi, in fact, we already began to apply some of these rules long before the pandemic. Now, they have expanded, and obviously include some new things. For example, safety masks, group size, distances… All this just for the sake of a pleasant and safe experience.

We present the SARS-CoV-2 safety measures that will be applied while visiting Celler Devinssi. Read them carefully to find out what exactly awaits you.

Yuletide is getting closer, so we’re facing this period when everybody’s looking for a special gift, whether for Christmas or for the New Year.
