The Empordàlia Cooperative was founded in 1947, combining the skills and experience of a number of small growers who had been producing unique wines and olive oil for generations. Our commitment is quite simply to combine tradition and quality in every bottle.
We are located in the region of the Empordà, sheltered by the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean sea and surrounded by 3 nature parks: Nature area of the Albera Massif, the Cap de Creus natural Park and the Aiguamolls de l’Empordà Natural park.
The climate in our region is Mediterranean with long hours of sunshine, very occasional rainfall and the strong northerly Tramuntana wind, the most characteristic aspect of the climate. We have a very heterogeneous land, with alluvial, slate and granitic soils, all them with low organic material content, ideal for high quality winemaking.
In Empordàlia, we cultivate the native varieties of Empordà – the White Grenache, Carignan and Muscat of Alexandria –are the main grapes used for the white wines, and –the Grenache and Carignan- are used for the reds. Our vineyards, made up of vines aged between 30 and 70 years, are classified according to their quality potential.
ABC wines, Antima, Balmeta and Coromina are our most representative wines which unite the terroir, old vines and the expertise of our growers to convey the spirit and strength of the DO Empordà.
