In this visit, we would like to show you the know–how of working in the vineyards and the secrets of making a good wine. For this reason, we count on the precious collaboration of the Álvarez Durán family, lifelong winemakers, in love with their craft and passionate about their winegrowing region, Priorat. The best hosts you can find to get to know this magnificent appellation of origin.
They will welcome you in their home located in the town of Porrera, where they also have their winery, and with them you will spend a very special morning discovering the vineyards, the winery and the winemaking process.
The visit begins with a leisurely walk through the beautiful village of Porrera until reaching their vineyards, La Ràpita and el Fonellàs, where they grow different types of grape varieties to make different wines.
Salus Álvarez, enologist and winery owner, will explain the daily work they do in the vineyards, you will learn to recognize some varieties of vines and you will get to know the element that distinguishes Priorat wine from any other wine in the world: licorice.
After walking through the vineyards, you will return to the winery, where Salus will show you the facilities where they make wine, located on the ground floor: the place where the grapes are pressed during the harvest, the room where the controls specific to winemaking are carried out and the stainless steel tanks for fermentation.
In the second floor, you will discover the barrel room, where wine is aged, and the visit will end in the top floor, with a wine-tasting guided in a dynamic, fun and sensorial way.
