Discover the Costa Brava through wine and let yourself be surprised by its nuances surrounded by the magic of the Empordà.
Gastronomy has an indisputable weight in tourism and for many of us is one of the main reasons to plan a trip, allowing us to enjoy new flavors.
If you are planning a weekend getaway with wine tasting in Catalonia, you cannot miss the best wineries in the Empordà and the best rated wines of Catalonia.
The Costa Brava has it all in terms of landscape, it is the perfect combination between the sea and the mountains. If we add to this the climatic conditions in which the vines are found, the result of the wines is exceptional and what better way to enjoy it than visiting them in person. The Garbet estate on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea is considered probably the most beautiful vineyard in Spain and from it comes Garbet, the 100% Syrah red wine aged for 24 months in barrels, the jewel of Peralada that has been awarded on numerous occasions.
