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!

You’ve been missing some cool activities in the middle of a vineyard, right? And especially now, that the grapes are about to be harvested? Well, our proposal is: grape harvest + wine tasting + nibbles!

Wine tasting with local nibbles. Serving suggestion.

A few years ago, we started offering the wine tasting with local nibbles called PICA-PICA”, thanks to our guests’ suggestions. The experience includes: a visit to the vineyard (to get to know the “terroir” and view Priorat‘s breath-taking scenery from Gratallops’ angle), a visit to the winery (where we make our wines) and a wine tasting with local nibbles. The price is €30 per person. 

So where do we get the local food? We do as much as we can to favour small local shops and to prioritise our area’s commercial network. We stick to this philosophy Continue reading

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
