  • Did you know that the Empordà region has a long winemaking tradition, dating back to the ancient Greek city of Empúries, in the sixth century BC?

  • Do you like the sea? Then visit the different DO Empordà wineries that you’ll find in Palamós, Calonge, Cadaqués and Colera, with splendid views of the Mediterranean.

  • Prefer to head inland? In Pals, Peralada, Capmany, Torrent, Rabós d’Empordà, Garriguella, Espolla or Fonteta, to name just a few villages, you’ll have the chance to taste the virtues of Empordà quality wines guided by wine experts who will take you around their wineries.

  • Over 30 Empordà wineries open their doors and give guided visits in different languages for all sorts of national and international visitors.

  • Don’t leave at the end of the wine tasting. Some wineries also cater for guests wishing to sleep among vines and there are even facilities nearby where you can pamper yourself with wine therapy treatments.

  • Oh! And like any good Catalan, the next day you can enjoy a hearty breakfast of organic produce from the wine estate.
