Description

This special bike tour will allow you to discover the Empord�, one of the oldest wine-producing regions in the world.Thanks to the Mediterranean climate and the soil, the footsteps of the mountains surrounding the plane are a perfect terrain to produce the grapes. The ancient farmers in the area decided to use the plains for planting olive trees and the slopes for planting vines on terraces separated by dry-stone walls.Since 2005 influential wine guru Robert Parker put Empord� on the world wine-producing map. Thanks of the hard work of the wineries this area has been certified as a Origin Designation of Empord�. You are invited to visit 2 of the best wine cellars!It�s an easy tour for regular cyclist that combines half of the tour on quite secondary roads, and half on nice and clean unpaved roads. Stages are 40km average without big climbs.The tour includes two guided visits to cellars with a wine tasting at the end.
