Empordà Wine Tour 8D

Discover the wines and cellars of Empordà.

8 Days Moderate

This week’s itinerary covers the Empordà interior and coast, a fascinating and diverse countryside with a long and independent history. Overlooking the sea, encircled by mountains that transform with the season riders cross the region of Empordà, a Spanish Designation of Origen (DO) (Denominació d'Origen in Catalan), formerly known as Empordà-Costa Brava, for wines produced in the northeastern corner of Catalonia.

The list of wine producers that make up this dynamic sector in Empordà today is very long. You are invited to visit the best wine cellars and will discover all kinds of wineries, of different sizes and origin. Grapes cover a wide range; Grenache (here known as Lledoner), Carignan in many varieties (white, red, young wines, fruity rosés and of course, excellent coupage crianzas) and the emblematic Garnatxa, considered as a dessert wine made with its variety. The climate makes our wines very special: mild temperatures, rainfall mainly in winter, the strong Tramuntana wind and the dark, lime content soil give are reflected behind a glass of our wines. The traditional cuisine and the prestigious modern gastronomy complete the experience.

The first part of the route focuses on the magnificent area of Baix Empordà, also known as the Catalan Tuscany for its beautiful countryside between the Sea and the mountains. The long history is reflected in a rich legacy of Medieval Architecture in numerous villages along the route added by rice- and olive-oil mills, museums, etc. In the second part of the tour riders have the opportunity to discover the northern county Alt Empordà with its long sandy beach next to the important Greek-Roman ruins of Empúries and numerous wineries of all sizes. The bike route ends in Figueres, famous for the Theatre-Museum Dalí.

The price includes 3 visits in different wineries and cellars.
