Review of Celler Devinssi
My two friends and I visited Celler Devinssi from Barcelona and met with Jordi in Gratallops. He made us feel very welcome and drove us out to see the vineyard, surrounded by beautiful views of the hilly Priorat landscape. Once at the vineyard, he spent some time teaching us how to prune the vines and how the pruning method would affect the way the vine grows later in the season. We also learned about how these very steep vineyards are managed, and how the slope makes impossible any kind of mechanical process – so everything is done manually here. My friends and I learned a lot that day and enjoyed a great time together. Priorat is worth a visit even in the wintertime. The people we met were all very friendly, the landscape just as majestic and its nice to enjoy a bit of work in the vineyard before relaxing with a glass of wine and calcotada with friends. Highly recommend!
