Let’s meet at Tast amb Llops 2015!

In fact, we wanted to title it: “Celler Devinssi, the big revelation at TastambLlops 2015”, however owing to our modesty, we haven’t done that 🙂

Anyway, on 2 May, we’ll be in Plaça de Dalt, Gratallops, from 6 to 9 pm, together with other 10 wineries operating in our village and also with some guest wineries.

Over the recent years, CellerDevinssi has participated quite a few times in the Wine Fair held in early May in Falset and involving our county’s both wine appellations: DOQ Priorat and DO Montsant. Meanwhile, we’ve been keeping an eye on the event that belongs to the extended version of the Fair: TastambLlops (“Tasting with Wolves” in Catalan) at the Cal Llop Hotel. This is a get-together that englobes the cellars that have wines entirely produced in our village of Gratallops, therefore these wines are called ‘vins de la vila’. Continue reading

2nd fair of Catalan cheeses and Priorat wines at Clos Figueras

Gratallops, 29 March, 2015

Do you like cheese and wine? Do you know how to pair them? The Clos Figueras winery proposes to learn how to pair these two exquisite products at the “2nd fair of Catalan cheeses and Priorat wines”. Here, you can get to know some Catalan cheese producers and also savour wines made by some of our county wineries, both within DOQ Piorat and DO Montsant appellations. Sounds mouth-watering, right?

When we received the invitation from Clos Figueras to participate we didn’t hesitate a sec to say yes. First of all, we’re good neighbours and we like to collaborate with them. Moreover, we just love the restaurant’s gardened terrace!

You can come over here with your friends and family to spend a very nice day and learn how about traditional grape harvesting in Priorat (with mules and carts) and barefoot grape stomping in an open barrel – and why not participate to experience those sensations our ancestors would live every autumn?
