About us

Travel Priorat was founded in 2003 by Rachel Ritchie, a Modern European Languages graduate, who came to the Priorat from her native England via Barcelona whilst doing research on the Spanish Civil War for the University of Barcelona. Rachel fell in love with the peace and quiet of this beautiful region of internationally acclaimed wines, olive oils and great food, as well as her husband, Gerard, and moved to the region to start her married life and also work as a freelance wine guide and translator for the Priorat Tourist Board.

Following Rachel’s untimely death in 2016 the business continues to be run by her husband, Gerard Amorós and guides Ania Andrews and Blanca Biosca (both level 3 WSET).
