Vineyard visits with Ricard Rofes guarantee car sickness and excitement in equal measure. Car sickness, because we lurch almost vertically up unmade roads, sweeping walkers out of our path and cornering sheer drops. And excitement because of the heart- stopping views.
The reason for the drama is that we are in Priorat. Rofes’ lofty vineyards, belonging to Priorat’s oldest winery, overlook the gloriously isolated valley.
