Dreaming of Wine
In Spanish with English subtitles
Suitable for all audiences audiences all ages
|The Priorat. A region where today boasts more than 100 wineries producing premium wines. However, only 30 years ago, there were no more than 4 wineries producing table wine. Eight centuries of wine production were on the verge of extinction. Priorat was one of the most depressed regions of Catalonia. How was the radical transformation possible?
They are known as The Magnificent Five. A handful of pioneers who arrived in to the Priorat in the early 1980s. The people of the region suspected of the intentions of this bunch of hippies, but the magnificent five were able to bring to the table the talent and perseverance while local people brought the hard work and tenacity that maintained the vine cultivation despite the decline in the region.
