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

Our visitor’s feedback at the website of the Priorat Tourism Office. Part 2

enoturisme al Priorat visita al Celler Devinssi, Gratallops, Costa DauradaWhat a lot of wine tours we’ve been hosting at the cellar! Despite the influx of wine tourists that have been coming over these days, we’ve found a gap in our agenda in order to share a second portion of visitors comments that were available at the Priorat tourism information website (see them below).

We have to admit and reveal that, over the last year, cellar door visitors that we’ve hosted learnt about us ‘through the grapevine’ and and our own resources, such as our website, blog in Russian, instagram and twitter. However, quite a few of them confessed having read the comments that were available at the Priorat tourism website. You can read our thoughts about the disappeared comments here.

In the meantime, we’re glad to tell you that it hasn’t taken longer than four years to get our TripAdvisor finally profile accepted,  so you can now leave your comment about your experience with Celler Devinssi in DOQ PrioratContinue reading
