Caught between the coddling Mediterranean Sea and the drastic Pyrenees mountain range that separates it from its sister land–the Languedoc–this Empordà appellation is bushwhacked by the fierce Tramontana winds, said to drive the locals a bit batty. The Empordà is on the rise as a wine-making region. There are very few wineries here that can aspire to world-class status.
But those that do take advantage of modern enology, soils that vary from slate to sand, from schist to silt in just a few yards. There is a new generation of vintners searching for the right match of grape to terroir.
You will discover these winemakers on a journey through some of Catalunya´s most beautiful landscapes, next to the Costa Brava, near Dali´s museum in Figueres, close to one of the world´s top restaurants–the three Michelin star El Celler de Can Roca–with one of Spain´s best wine lists.
