The Priorat region has recently become famous for its wine thanks to a
new generation of wine makers who modernised the traditional methods here just 30 years ago. Today these new Priorato wines
are being hailed as some of the best Spanish wines and are gaining world wide recognition for their flavour and heritage.
Priorat has been producing wine for over 1000 years in a tradition that was revived by nearby monks and their
holy vineyards in the 11th Century. The quality of todays wine is because of mature lower yielding vines, low summer rainfall,
steep slopes that prevent automated harvesting and the rich red volcanic soil. Wine tours of the many bodegas are available
(bookable in advance) where you can sample and learn about the making and philosophy behind the wines.
the Casita you can explore the many monasteries, villages and bodegas by bicycle, foot or car. Nearby Cartoixia d'Escaladei
meaning Ladder of God is the oldest Carthusian monastery in Spain and well worth a visit. It also gave the Priorat region
it's name. There is a network of foot paths and walking routes called senderos which connect local towns and villages and
form part of the E4 euro-walk from Spain to Greece. Alforja has 3 equestrian centres offering horse back excursions into the
surrounding countryside and mountain bikers, climbers and thrill seekers will not be disappointed with recognised routes across
the more extreme landscape.
