Empordà wine region: 2500 years of wine history by Costa Brava
The history of wine in the northeastern part of Spain began more than 2500 years ago, when the Greeks founded the town of Emporion aside the Mediterranean and brought their wine to the Iberian Peninsula. Later on, the Romans continued in the area with their vine growing.
Placed at the foot of the last part of Pyrenees is ideal for characteristic and full bodied red and white wines, but also delicious dessert wines, sparkling and rosé wines are produced in the region.
All around the “Cap de Creus”, where the last part of the Pyrenees meet the sea, the dark rock is carved by the wind into fascinating formations, which absolutely fascinated the artist Salvador Dalí.
