The Ultimate Harvest Experience in Spain’s Spectacular Priorat
September 20, 2023 by Perrie Hartz
Mas d’en Bruno is a stunning boutique hotel nestled among the rolling vineyards of Spain’s magnificent yet still under-the-radar Priorat wine region. Located in southern Catalonia, Priorat is a land of rolling hills, steep valleys, dramatic landscapes, and Medieval villages situated along the banks of the picturesque Siurana River. With many incredible wineries, Priorat is the ideal location for wine lovers, as this seemingly untouched area of Spain is known for producing some of the world’s best wines— and is only 2 hours from Barcelona. The hotel itself is comprised of 24 suites with private terraces and patios, a pair of restaurants, a bar, an exquisite spa, a wine cellar and tasting room, beautiful Mediterranean gardens, and a spectacular infinity pool.
This autumn, Mas d’en Bruno invites guests to experience the Harvest Package, an offer that includes accommodations in a Junior Suite for two people, a sommelier masterclass, a private wine tasting in the hotel’s wine tasting cave, and a relaxing one-hour spa treatment, including body massage, exfoliation, and facial masks.
Guests who book the Harvest Package will also find many immersive vineyard experiences to enjoy during their stay, from e-bike tours of the neighboring medieval towns and landscapes, private yoga sessions among the sweet-smelling vines, cocktail workshops, olive oil tastings, personally-curated vineyard picnics, stargazing, and even a helicopter tour that boasts breathtaking panoramic views of the rugged mountains, ancient vineyards, and picturesque villages that adorn Priorat’s unique landscape.
Guests will be sure to eat well during their wine-centric stay, as Mas d’en Bruno’s restaurant focuses masterfully on a menu using only the finest local produce, prepared elegantly in a gourmet yet unpretentious manner. During the day, guests will enjoy lunch at Tarraco, which combines Mediterranean and Italian fare in an homage to the region’s historic Roman influences. At night, the restaurant transforms itself into the chic and elegant Vinum, where the chef’s incredible tasting menus can be enjoyed with perfect wine pairings created by the property’s head sommelier.
With the Harvest Package’s Sommelier’s Exclusive Masterclass, guests will become immersed in the magic of Priorat’s terroir and enjoy a private lesson with a renowned winemaker from the region, where they’ll learn about Priorat’s captivating history, it’s unusual geographical conditions, and why Priorat’s wines are so unique. They’ll also be trying some of the most exquisite wines from the area in the wine tasting room, a bespoke, intimate space with a classic vaulted ceiling and hidden wine vault.
