The Priorat Enoturisme association is made up of men and women from the area and others who have fallen in love with the charm and the magic of the Priorat, its landscape, its silence and the natural and cultural heritage of this area. That’s why we take every chance to create events and make ourselves known in our own country and beyond, because we’re people who think that we’ll get further by working together.
Wine tourism – “enoturisme” in Catalan – is a natural fit between the different economic sectors that grow up primarily in connection with the world of wine, but also that of olive oil. We started out in 2013 and currently bring together more than sixty businesses, including accommodation (small hotels, country holiday accommodation, apartments and campsites), restaurants, wine shops, wineries in the Priorat’s two wine designations, the DOQ Priorat and the DO Montsant, traditional oil mills in the DO Siurana, a taxi business and activity companies and travel agencies.
Together, by networking, we offer a diverse range of quality services which, with the hospitality that characterises small-scale tourism, we place at our visitors’ disposal.
As members of Prioritat (the group behind the Priorat’s bid for World Heritage status) and of the working group for the CETS (European Charter for Sustainable Tourism), we are working together to build a viable, sustainable model for the area, in both landscape and economic terms.
Whether you’re walking from village to village on old mule tracks, cycling, going by taxi or even by train – or of course by car – we invite you to visit our establishments, which are distributed around the 24 villages of the Priorat. A “comarca” (county) with just 19 inhabitants per square kilometre, where life goes on at the pace of the vine-growing cycle, on stony hillsides, at the foot of the Serra del Montsant nature park, against a backdrop of almond blossom in spring and a sea of richly-coloured wine leaves in autumn… A natural paradise we invite you to savour, without forgetting the essential traits that explain and give meaning to our area. Welcome to the Priorat!
