Would you like to be a vineyard gardener for a day? In the spring, grapevines expand their foliage rapidly turning the place into a green garden, full of twigs and leaves. It certainly creates a lovely view, and still needs some tidying up… And after a good while pruning the vines, what could be better than a delicious traditional meal to recharge the batteries? Would you like to see how arròs de tros from Priorat is cooked and than savour it?

Well, now it’s time to green-prune the vines in Priorat… Have you ever heard of this? Sounds like pruning, but done when the vineyards are lush green. It’s a crucial vineyard hands-on activity that consists in preserving the best vine twigs towards the grape ripening and culling all the others. Would you like to learn how to green-prune a vine in a great company and eat arròs de tros (a traditional Priorat paella)?
From Gratallops (DOQ Priorat) and Falset (county capital), we’re inviting you to enjoy an exciting vine-and-foodie activity: green-pruning vines and eating paella.
Save the date on 2, 8 or 9 June (Thursday, Friday and Tuesday) in order to enjoy Priorat’s striking scenery and learn how to prune vines.
