In the wine regions there is always a reason for a celebration and from May onwards there are several wine festivals. During the first weekend of May, there was the Fira del Vi in Falset with wine cellars from the Priorat and Montsant presenting their wines. In these two Catalan wine regions, mainly red wines are produced. A selection of wines you could taste and buy at the stands of more than 70 wine cellars.
During this wine festival, Falset and the surrounding areas are buzzing with activities. From concerts and culinary events to special tastings in the vineyards. This year, for example, there was a special wine tasting at one of the wine cellars with wines from female winemakers and the event Vidart combined wine with music. During this event you could taste wines from different wine producers and enjoy a piano concert in the wine cellar.
Another major wine festival in Catalonia is in the neighboring wine region of Penedès …
