Priorat. A region boasting 150 wineries, high-end wines on worldwide top ten lists and at fancy restaurants across the globe. But just 30 years ago, it had just four wineries and they were producing table wine. Eight centuries of wine production were on the brink of extinction. The young locals were fleeing to find work. Priorat was at the bottom of the barrel. How is such a radical transformation possible? They’re called the Magnificent Five. A handful of pioneers who came to Priorat in the early 80s. Seen as a bunch of hippies upstarts, few of the remaining locals had any confidence in them. But they brought talent and perseverance to the table and the locals brought hard work and their own tenacity at having kept grape-growing alive even while the region was in decline. This is the story of The Magnificent Five and the people of Priorat. How together, they turned a declining area into one of the most vibrant wine producing regions in Spain and the world, and found a future in their wine.
