On summer evenings and nights, you can enjoy different types of music concerts combined with a DO Empordà wine tasting in idyllic settings throughout the region, or under starry skies and surrounded by century-old vineyards. You can even choose to go on a guided visit, for instance, to learn about the winemaking past of the monastery of Sant Pere de Rodes.
Food and wine experiences every night in summer.
Here are some ideas for spending summer nights on the best music and food & wine in Girona:
Concerts, poetry recitals, circus shows, dance, theatre, cultural exhibitions and film screenings to round tables and plastic arts workshops. The festival provides a wonderful chance to enjoy privileged venues as the backdrop for concerts, such as the cove of Mar d’en Manassa in L’Escala, or the Greek agora in the ruins of Empúries. Some of the concerts are presented in small format, like the DO RE VI cycle, which pairs three musical performances with local wines.
A Night under the Stars, by La Vinyeta
Great wine, great music … and starry skies.
Imagine tasting a delicious DO Empordà wine under a starry sky on a summer’s night as you soak up the laid-back atmosphere of live music being played at one of the Empordà’s iconic wineries, amid vineyards and ancient olive groves. Every year La Vinyeta in Mollet de Peralada hosts “A Night under the Stars” which starts off with a breathtaking summer sunset, continues with great music, an alfresco supper prepared by the La Vinyeta team, and finishes up with an astronomy session.
MasiaMarket, by Masia Serra
Cantallops, nestling in the very heart of the Alt Empordà’s wine tourism area, provides the setting every year for the Masia Serra winery’s MasiaMarket, amid vineyards and olive groves at the foot of the Albera mountains. This market sells quality local craft products combined with tastings of local wines and tapas at food trucks.
Summer Nights at Finca Furot
Grup Oliveda organises the summer concerts on its Finca Furot to coincide with the full moon and naturally concertgoers also get the chance to sample and taste the winery’s acclaimed wines Rigau Ros, Masia Oliveda and Clos Primat.
Wine Evenings at Sant Pere de Rodes
In Alt Empordà the Rodes mountains provide a spectacular setting for the vast Romanesque monastery of Sant Pere de Rodes, which was formerly one of the main spiritual centres of the ancient county of Empúries and affords breathtaking views of Cap de Creus headland. A professional wine expert conducts different visits to trace the history of winemaking and the monastery monks’ ancient art of making wine. You’ll have the chance to taste wine pairings from different Empordà wineries for every type of occasion and to sample local products.
