Empordà it is a county located 1:30h north from Barcelona, in the Girona province and very close to the French border. The region is divided in 2 sub-regions: Alt Empordà and Baix Empordà.
It is famous for its red wines made out of Grenache and Carignane, full of complexity, smooth tanins, silky texture and earthy flavour. They also produce very interesting sweet wines out of White Grenache and Red Grenache.
The landscape is just amazing and one of the most beautiful in Catalunya. Empordà is the home town of Costa Brava: the Mediterranean sea, little coves, pine trees by the sea, charming little villages and vineyards everywhere. Unique.
Two of the keys of their success are the several kind of soils (slate, granite or limestone) and the old vines (some of them over 100 years old), which gives special nuances and unique falvour.
These facts make Empordà wines interesting to get to know as they have a big potential to be some of the best wines in Catalunya. Many people comes from all over to discover their secrets.
There are no big wineries with large productions. Most of the cellars are family owned, producing just few thousands bottles and they are anxious to show their tradition to foreign visitors.
