Enoturisme (Wine turism)
The Torn, is named after a tool used in the construction of wine barrels, one of the last barrel makers in the region had his workshop in the basement of the house.
Therefore, due to the family’s dedication to the vineyards and the long tradition of wine making in this part of the Empordà which produces wines of great quality, we would like to suggest to you the possibility of getting to know the wines of the DO Empordà by visiting the local wineries.
Denomination of Origin Empordà wines
The region has a long winemaking tradition, this, together with the suitability of the land and new technologies and knowledge has enabled the making of high quality wines. There has been a proliferation of new wineries and the renewal of old ones making currently a total of 42 wineries and cooperatives. We should note that the prestigious sommelier Robert Parker from the magazine “The Wine Advocate” has rated over 90 points to 28 DO Empordà wines, recognising the effort and good work.
We would like to offer you visits to DO Empordà wineries, we can recommend some wineries in Garriguella itself or
other wineries in the area of you choice where you will be able to enjoy the visit and taste the wines.
For those who want to increase their knowledge further, there is the possibility of organising group tours that include visits to 1, 2 or more wineries. The tour can include visits to the most representative places of the Empordà being able to customise the tour to your taste and convenience. Another way to get to know the area!
Recently, the production of oil in Empordà has been named Protected Designation of Origin (PDO), which includes olive oil mills in the region. Similarly to the winery changes, the application of new technologies and knowledge, together with the ancient tradition of olive cultivation has allowed the production of excellent oils whose quality is recognised everywhere.
We would also suggest a visit to these mills to get to know the oils produced.
