Bodegas Prios Maximus

We leave Galicia and make our way to Ribera del Deuro the sun shines and we arrive at our Hotel which is a converted Monastery with Thermal Pool in time for a quick glass of Rose before we meet Dani at Prios.

This is our fourth year at this Bodegas and what a change, on our first visit we had to clamber over pipes, boxes etc the tasting was on a barrel in the middle of the store room, what a difference four year’s make! the Bodegas has been transformed and now is a ‘state of the art’ winery. New shiny machinery for bottling de-stemming etc. the cellar where the barrels are stored has also been updated with wooden stays to hold them steady and enable a fourth row to be stored. All the red wine made here is stored in either French, American or Hungarian barrels for at least 6 months. There are new Offices, Conference Room and tasting area, it is now the most stunning building.

To make this transformation has taken a lot of time and planning but this has not been to the detriment of the wines as this is the main concern of the family. Picking has started earlier this year and like the other vineyards we have visited the yield is down but the quality of grapes is superb so 2017 vintage should be a good one.
