About us

Travel Priorat was founded in 2003 by Rachel Ritchie (www.rachelritchie.com), 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 Amoros and family friend Ania Andrews, supported by a network of other friends and family members.

We provide guided Wine Tours in the Priorat and Montsant wine regions, combined with luxury accommodation from our base in the heart of Priorat wine country. We also offer leisure walking tours in unspoilt Priorat with a knowledgable and experienced local guide. Our itineraries combine historic interest, enjoyment of nature and of course, great food and fine wines.

Throughout the year, the Priorat plays host to a series of cultural, historical and gastronomic events. Discover what Priorat has to offer, have a look through our website or send us an email. We are happy to discuss your interests and requirements to put together a personalised itinerary for you.

At travelpriorat.com we combine an unrivalled knowledge and understanding of the Priorat region with an obsessive attention to detail and an unceasing quest for quality. We love what we do and the region where we live and are passionate about sharing our knowledge of this small exclusive, wine-making region in North-eastern Spain.
