Grapevine adopters’ newsletter (January, 2016)

ametller florint priorat devinssi 02Should almonds bloom in January?

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…

Grape harvest 2015 in Priorat: with our grapevine adopters (video)

What implications do our grapevine adoptions have? One of the main features are wine tourism activities for grapevine adopters’ club members.

In September, 2015, our adopters were lucky to participate in a grape harvest master class topped off with a wine tasting at our old vineyad, in the shadow of an old almond tree, enjoying the company, wines, and marvellous panoramic views of the Monstant mountain, Gratallops and El Lloar villages… Vine adopters came from everyplace: Catalonia, Finland, Russia, Poland, Belgium… They really enjoyed our Rocapoll 2012 and particularly when tasting it straigtaway at the vineyard where grapes were harvested for this wine.

On that day, our grapevine guardian Yolanda helped us a lot with filming some moments of the grape harvest master class, where the main part was given to vines and their sponsors. The film was recorded with a GoPro, an iPhone and iPad and intended to get you closer to Priorat vineyard farming… Do you feel like blending in? Besides, Yuletide is round the bend, and grapevine adoptions could be a great gift idea for Christmas, New Year or Three King’s Day.
