A morning in the vineyards. 10am wine tastings at a 20% discount!

“Si del dia vols profit, que no et trobi el sol al llit”. A Catalan saying. (“The early bird catches the worm”… or maybe the wine?)

We have a new proposal for those of you who are able to get up earlier to enjoy a wine tasting in the vineyard.

On the one hand, we see the current demand for our wine tastings and, on the other hand, we must stick with the safety rules against Covid-19, which force us to limit the visitor count per group.

Therefore, for your safety, we suggest that you also take advantage of the 10am to 12 noon time slot to visit Celler Devinssi. To reward early-bird visitors who want to turn up at 10am, we offer you a 20% discount on the price of any type of visit you choose. It also applies to gift vouchers (ask us for the online shop discount code).

Into the bargain, early birds will have a 5% discount on the price of wine purchased at the cellar door.

The promotion is not cumulative. Valid until 31 December 2020.

Stay healthy and enjoy wine!  (IN MODERATION)

P.S. If you feel like starting at 9am, let’s haggle the discount! We’ll surely find common ground 🙂

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?

A vineyard in Priorat as a Christmas gift!

original gift idea christmas adopt a grapevine priorat devinssi

Yuletide is getting closer, so we’re facing this period when everybody’s looking for a special gift, whether for Christmas or for the New Year. There are also presents for people who love wine, who love exporing the world of wine-making, discovering vineyard panoramas, sharing a nice chat with friends and family over a glass of wine, or strolling through vineyard aisles and visiting wineries…

We can give them, say, a Christmas gift set featuring a wine selection to their taste, or surprise them with a wine tourism experience (for example a grape escape to wine making region with wine tastings and stays at small hotels or rural cottages in the area).

It’s quite a few years since we started promoting the gift idea for wine lovers that brings together our DOQ Priorat wines and an experience that, actually, goes beyond Continue reading
