A vineyard in Priorat as a Christmas gift!

original gift idea christmas adopt a grapevine priorat devinssi

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. There are also presents for people who love wine, who love exporing the world of wine-making, discovering vineyard panoramas, sharing a nice chat with friends and family over a glass of wine, or strolling through vineyard aisles and visiting wineries…

We can give them, say, a Christmas gift set featuring a wine selection to their taste, or surprise them with a wine tourism experience (for example a grape escape to wine making region with wine tastings and stays at small hotels or rural cottages in the area).

It’s quite a few years since we started promoting the gift idea for wine lovers that brings together our DOQ Priorat wines and an experience that, actually, goes beyond Continue reading

April, a month of peace and quiet?

Dear grapevine adopters,

Vineyards are so full of flowers and so beautiful… The landscape is completely awash in springtime this April. What a panoramic luxury. Continue reading

Well, finally, nature has made up for the previous lack of grass and flowers, which was so obvious! Winds brought clouds, the clouds shed fresh rains, the rains entailed the grass boom! Did you know why it’s important to keep the grass growing at our vineyards? Continue reading

Okay, so January was quite a springtime… What about February? According to the popular wisdom, February has longer days but it’s often the coldest month of the year, here in Priorat. Quite a windy month, although also with nice periods of sunshine and calm: we wre even able to pick wild asparagus. The month completed with some modest snowfalls in the mountains. See the video filmed by our vine adopter Jaime Boldú in the villages of Siurana and Albarca, nestling on high rockd in the northern part of Priorat. Here in Gratallops we didn’t see a single snowflake, and on the next day it was quite warm. Continue reading

Of course, every year, there are just a few almond trees that blossom early… But this time it’s been a blossom crush! Both in Priorat and everyplace. Good weather, sometimes overly good, has favoured vineyard works, because it makes the vine pruning a nicer experience. Zero rains, little wind, plenty of sunny days, quite a spring break for a winter… In fact, we saw the first almond blossoms on 2 January! Continue reading

Enjoying a day like today, seasoned with good humour, good company… is priceless…

Happy New Year, dear vine adopters!

Today we’re going to keep it short, however there are some details to share.

Your grapevines had a very happy December. Unwinding, hibernating and waiting for the new challenges in 2016. At the winery, we used the time to handle the Christmas campaing and unstoppable wine tours. The season doesn’t seem to be over. Just check this out: we already have a bunch of bookings for this January! Continue reading

Wines and wine tourism: 20 highlights of 2015. Celler Devinssi, DOQ Priorat

Greetings from Priorat! We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy 2016!For our winery, 2015 has been quite demanding from beginning to end. A marvellous grape harvest after a very changeable summer (with August-style July vs. mellow August)… There have been so many nice moments that it’s a challenge for us to choose twenty of them and draw the bottom line. Thank you all for thinking about us and for your treasurable collaboration. We wish you a Merry Christmass and a Happy 2016!


 

1. The year started with the whizz-bang article by Laura Casas for La Vanguardia Tarragona about our grapevine adoptions in Priorat. The article was out on 2 January and it had such a viral wallop that from 2 to 6 January we couldn’t help preparing adoption packages. Apart from that, some radio stations, like La Xarxa or Onda Cero, called us for interviews, while Ruth Troyano gave a detailed account of our initiative in her air section called “El Porró” at the Ona La Torre radio.

2. Do you remember the snowsall on 4 February? Well, here’s the video. Continue reading
