Marco Rossi –
Ivan was our guide for the 12 hours tour to the Priorat wine region. We left Barcelona very early and arrived at the Más Doix cellars, a new building facing the Monsant mountain range. During that visit, joined by another couple of tourists, we tasted 5 different wines made with Granatxa and other local grapes. A visit to Cartoixa d’Escaladei (Carthusian Monastery of Santa Maria d’Escaladei) was extremely useful to understand the history (since the year 1200) behind this prolific region of quality wines. We had lunch at the Clos Figueres restaurant where we tried an excellent Garnatxa wine (Figueres 2017) with our food based on local produce. We ended our tour with a very detailed visit to Scala Dei, the most known cellar of the region. Along the visit, we enjoyed the enthusiasm of Paul, our internal guide, a very proud Brit that has been in the region for over 20 years. A special recognition to the knowledge of Ivan, not only in terms of the Priorat region but of Catalonia at large. All in all, a very remarkable experience that I strongly recommend.

Ivan gave us a most individual trip, we have been to the area before but this trip took us right to the heart of the area, speaking to people involved in the industry not just a person dealing with visitors. The visit to the biodynamic vineyard was amazing, standing within those vines was so peaceful and we could really sense how at one with nature they were. An excellent day throughout with a wonderful guide – Ivan looked after us really well and was very obliging, I am so glad we booked this it made our holiday.

It was a very good tour.
Ivan does well curating the sites / wineries to visit during the tour. The meal, restaurant was also outstanding!
We were able to visit an entirely new area outside of Barcelona that was beautiful because of this, Priorat was breath taking!
It was great! We went to two wineries and it couldn’t be more beautiful. This all thanks to Ivan (our guide). He asked for our preferences and really listened to us and made this a tour we will not forget!
