Join us for what should be a fascinating evening as we take a village specific look into Priorat – one of only two regions to hold Spain’s top-tier DOCa classification.

Priorat shot to fame in the 90’s with commanding, cult status wines that attracted the wine world’s attention. Old vine Garnacha (Grenache) and Carignan from lost valleys. However, the real revolution has come in the last 15 years as winemakers have reimagined and reshaped their approach, producing beautiful wines with a lighter, prettier touch. And like Burgundy, location and producer are the key.

Get to know the villages of the region, from the cooler north to the warmer south, and what makes them so special – the soil, the climate and the winemaking techniques.

Hosted by Scott Wasley, from importer The Spanish Acquisition, this will be a rediscovery of these incredible wines that happily sit somewhere between Burgundy and Barbaresco in terms of character and style. Electric wines, earthy and beautifully weighted.
