Marianna and Gerard planned our entire 2 day Priorat experience, and it far exceeded everything we could have hoped for. The beauty of the Priorat is stunning, and the wines are fantastic, but the history and the human warmth we experienced during our stay made this trip unforgettable.
Two unexpected experiences are only a small portion of the many memories we will take home. 1 - We spent the morning leisurely drinking spectacular wines at Clos de l’Obec with Carles Pastrana, one of the “Magnificents” responsible for the modern restoration of the potential of Priorat wines. 2 - after having mentioned that we served Nit de Nin to our family at Thanksgiving dinner the week before, we were surprised during our lunch by a visit from the charming Ester Nin, the wine’s co-owner and head winemaker. All arranged by Gerard.
We will return to el Priorato, and we will work with no one other than Mariana and Gerard. They were kind, professional and supremely knowledgeable about the product and place. They made this an unforgettable experience.More
