Tradition and quality in every bottle

Product ID: 53914
Description

Discover Empordàlia, a Spanish Wine Cellar in the region of the Empordà in Catalonia which produces Spanish Wine from DO Empordà and Extra Virgin Olive Oil. 
 
Empordàlia is located in a tiny region at the North-Eastern tip of Catalonia sheltered to the north by the Pyrenees. To the East, it is bordered by the foothills of the Verdera range, the Bay of Roses and the Mediterranean; to the South, the plain stretching to the Empordà Marshes, and to the West, the cliffs of the Garrotxa, their neighbouring district.

To do this, their intention is for each vintage to conserve the defining features of the Empordà.

Discover Empordàlia, a Spanish Wine Cellar in the region of the Empordà in Catalonia which produces Spanish Wine from DO Empordà and Extra Virgin Olive Oil. 
 
Empordàlia is located in a tiny region at the North-Eastern tip of Catalonia sheltered to the north by the Pyrenees. To the East, it is bordered by the foothills of the Verdera range, the Bay of Roses and the Mediterranean; to the South, the plain stretching to the Empordà Marshes, and to the West, the cliffs of the Garrotxa, their neighbouring district.
 
Empordàlia is an association of small producers from the Empordà who have been working the Empordà land for generations - those of Pau, Roses and Vilajuïga. Their commitment is quite simply to combine tradition and quality in every bottle. To do this, their intention is for each vintage to conserve the defining features of the Empordà.
 
They are a big family working the vineyards and olive groves just as their grandparents and great-grandparents taught them to do; with respect for the land, true to their values, and carrying forward the tradition for the benefit of future generations.
 
Their story began in 1947 with the founding of the cooperative in Vilajuïga. The cooperative of Pau was created later, in 1961, and merged with that of Roses. The three cooperatives were created with the same purpose in mind: to work together and produce a quality product that reflects the character of the region. United by this common purpose, in 2015, they decided to join together and create what is now known as Empordàlia, a name that represents them all. Empordàlia is the fruition of many years of hard toil, teamwork and a desire to perpetuate a tradition.
 
Empordàlia produces the Oli de Pau extra virgin olive oil, made exclusively from olives produced by centuries old trees in Empordà. They come from two varieties which are only found in the region, the Argudell and the Corivell; and these, along with the distinctive feature of the Empordà climate: the Tramontane North wind, give their olive oil a character that truly sets it apart.
 
The Wine Cellar offers guests several wines: white, red, rose, aging wine, wine reserve and cava.
 
Empordàlia also offers its visitors different types of tours and tastings. Enjoy guided tours with wine and oil tastings that can be combined with other activities, for example: a gastronomic lunch at the winery, pairings, walks around the vineyards with breakfast, tours to the vineyards by electric bicycle, a tasting on a kayak in the Mediterranean sea, and you can even combine your visit with an entrance to the Citadel of Roses.
 
There is an exclusive private space for conferences, private or family get togethers and celebrations with the option of tasting the wines and oil.
