Salud!#4 “El Priorat”

via

El Priorat es located in the south of Catalonia. The villages there have been framed into oblivion. Hidden and cramped villages, like Porrera, marked by forgetfulness, misery, hardship and without anything around. However, their almond blossom perfectly represents their rebirth.

El Priorat está al sur de Cataluña. Sus pueblos han estados marcados en el olvido. Han sido pueblos escondidos, encogidos, como Porrera, marcados por la miseria y la penuria y sin nada a su alrededor. Sin embargo, el almendro en flor representa a la perfección su renacimiento.

Its wine is like the sound of a cello: slow, leisurely, nostalgic andwith a taste of reunion. Its flavor is strong, a mix of bitter, harsh and forceful. Priorat wine is rustic and it is a hallmark for Catalonia.

Su vino es como el sonido de un violonchelo: lento, pausado, nostálgico y de reencuentro. Su sabor es contundente. Una mezcla de amargos, ásperos y graves. El vino de El Priorat es rústico y una seña de identidad.

Cheers! ¡Salud!
