There is no doubt that the wine culture and knowledge of the wine trade Catalonia in the 6th century BC. This area was once the most important Greek colony in Spain, and Emporiae was a Greek city that later gave its name to the Empordà district. Four centuries later, there is archaeological and documentary evidence that wines in the Emporiae and other Tarraconensis regions were known at local markets in other provinces of the Roman Empire and in the metropolis itself.

Nowadays, the Empordà region offers us many different wines.

They are complex, with a delicate aroma and hint of herbs, they always retain the aroma of fruit and vines. The tastes are full, tasty and pleasant.

Fresh and delicious white wines are decorated with original varieties and other high quality that are unique.

Rose wines are also produced with a well-pronounced cherry color, good personality, delicate aroma, fresh with a moderate alcohol content.
