Friday Feature Photo: Vineyards of the Priorat

Harvest Priorat Spain

Photographer: Ryan Opaz

Capture Date: September 5, 2010

Location: Priorat, Spain

About: Just south of Barcelona lies the lush and contrasting vineyards of the Priorat. Around the middle of September in Bellmunt and El Lloar the harvest typically kicks off, and continues through the end of October or the beginning of November in Porrera and La Morera de Montsant. Vineyards are commonly worked as “costers” (Catalan word meaning steep slope), which are so incredibly steep that farmers have built terraces to offset the torturous terrain. Close your eyes and imagine a 500 meter vertical drop while harvesting grapes by hand on a narrow precipice. Daunting? Fortunate for you, your only job to enjoy the end product! (Read a first hand account of a Priorat harvest.)
