A popular festival elevated to the rank of unavoidable tradition

The Festa del Vi and the Verema de l’Antiga de Poboleda were born with the ambition of being a popular festival, a time when the community gathered to celebrate the richness of the terroir, the art of the vine and the spirit of celebration. Over the years, the festival has grown and become a reference event and a must on the cultural agenda of our region.

Raising standards: a tribute to the prestigious world of Priorat wine

With the rise of the Priorat wine industry and the development of wine tourism, interest in the world of wine has increased considerably. As the sector becomes more professional, the expectations of wine lovers become more refined. This is why the Festa del Vi i la Verema aspires to be much more than just a festival, it wants to be a quality reference, representing the different producers and highlighting the work, effort and, above all, the love that goes into each bottle of wine.

A dive into the wine traditions

The festivities begin with the evocative ringing of the bells and the old-fashioned harvest. This first stage is tinged with nostalgia, recalling the time when the harvest was a collective activity, full of conviviality and sharing. At the end of the harvest, a very appreciated breakfast is served, strengthening the links between the participants.
Then comes the “piada del râim”, a tradition in which participants walk barefoot on the grapes in a cossiol, a sensory experience that recalls the first stages of the wine tradition of the Priorat. This authentic practice strengthens the link between past and present, between community and land.

An exquisite tasting in an idyllic setting

DOQ Priorat wine tasting is an essential part of the festival. It takes place at the majestic entrances of the mansions of Calle Major, offering a picturesque setting to discover the wine treasures of the region. The diversity of aromas, flavours and textures testifies to the know-how of local winemakers, taking participants on a sensory journey through the unique terroir of Priorat.

Crafts, culture and entertainment: a complete experience

Alongside the tastings, the Raval district hosts a craft fair, showcasing local talent and authentic artisan products. It is the perfect opportunity to discover the creative treasures of the region, acquire unique souvenirs and enjoy local crafts.
The afternoon comes alive with the performances of the Castell, a spectacular demonstration of human know-how and collective strength. This Catalan tradition adds a touch of cultural pride to the event. Finally, the evening ends with a dancing evening at the camp “La Closa”, where music and dance create a joyful and relaxed atmosphere to close the party in beauty.
La Festa del Vi i la Verema de l’Antiga de Poboleda offers a complete experience, combining wine traditions, exquisite tastings, local crafts, cultural shows and festive entertainment. It is an event where a rich cultural heritage combines harmoniously with the passion for wine, creating unforgettable memories for participants and perpetuating the wine heritage of Priorat.
