We head north of Barcelona towards Girona on a two hour drive to reach the grounds of the Perelada Castle; a place full of history and tradition, still owned by the Counts of Peralada.
This is one of the most prestigious Spanish wine cellars, winning international prizes and has now become a cultural centre where international artists sing at open air concerts. This is the oldest wine producing region of Spain, a land of contrasts enviably located between the Catalan Pyrenees, only 16 miles to the French border and the Mediterranean Sea.
This Denomination of Origin is named Empordà´s and its micro climate benefits from mild winters and harsh summers. This is the perfect mix to produce a fantastic grape quality which is later reflected in the quality of its wine.
After stopping at the Peralada Castle, you head to the village of Llançà by the sea to step on board our boat for a 3 hours sailing trip, by the vineyards of their sister wine cellar, Finca Garbet. The only Catalan wine cellar with vineyards close to the sea.
Their vineyards grow local grape varieties like Macabeu and Xarello, as well as foreigners’ grapes like Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Gewurztraminer. Red wines are made from one of our local favourites, Carinyena and Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah.Catalan lunch is included.
