We have a proposal to explore this November: DOQ Priorat red wine aromas master class.

During the workshop you will be able to get to know the aromas of our wines thanks to the SomAromes pack and decide which wine will be best to drink or give this Christmas.

The SomAromes del Mas de les Valls pack includes 8 aromas in the form of natural products that describe the aromatic profile of our red Mas de les Valls (DOQ Priorat) and is also applicable to the other red wines we produce. This pack is also an ideal gift for people who are starting out in the world of wine!

This summer, be mindful when using water in Priorat

This summer, be mindful when using water in Priorat

Today we would like to talk to all the people who come to visit us in Priorat.

This summer is turning out to be very dry and in Gratallops we are already starting to notice the effect of the drought, we sometimes lack the pressure of the tap water.

The problem is very complex and if you want to know more you can read the article in the newspaper Reus Digital: Priorat will study the legal responsibilities of the ACA if the new interbasin transfer of the Siurana creek leaves it without water.

Please do your best to save water during your stay at the Priorat (when showering, washing, watering plants, etc.). We want you to enjoy our scenery and our wines and at the same time we also want to enjoy our home, which is going through very difficult times right now.

Many thanks in advance.

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!

Wine tasting with local nibbles. Serving suggestion.

The price is €30 per person.
