Priorat Walking Tour

You wouldn't think high quality wine could come out of hard, slate soil where water is scarce, yet the Priorat region produces grapes with an unusual flavorful character due to these harsh conditions. On a seven-day, self-guided walking tour you will walk along well-marked and comfortable trails half of the day, as you visit local vineyards and wineries in each village. At night you will lodge in select hotels and inns where you will dine on local gourmet cuisine.
