For most people visiting Catalonia and its capital, Barcelona, wine isn’t often the first thing on one’s mind. Most of us head to the beach, shop, imbibe, or meander about the ancient cities and villages that define this Catalan part of Spain.
For those who make it up to the north, perhaps to visit the Dalí Museum in Figueres or the beaches of the Costa Brava, you’ll find yourself in a whole different world from Barcelona. In the midst of the two Empordà counties, you’ll see vineyards spilling out across the plain and up the sides of the mountains.
This enotourism guide gives you extensive profiles for 59 wineries in the region with their GPS coordinates, hundreds of full color photos, maps, and tasting notes for 260 wines making it the most essential book for planning your own wine tour.
