HISTORY

Wine has been produced in the Empordà region for 2500 years, when the Greeks founded the colony of Empúries and began cultivating the vines. The roman colonizers continued this tradition, until years later when the vines were left in the hands of the Benedictine monks at Sant Pere de Rodes monastery.

Perelada is a small town in Empordà, to the North of Catalonia and very close to the French boarder. It's a beautiful Medieval town overlooked by the castle built in the XIV century. There are several parchments and documents that show that wine has been made at Castillo de Perelada since the Middle Ages, in the XIV century. In 1923 Miguel Mateu Pla, the mayor of Barcelona and Spanish ambassador of Paris, bought the ensemble of buildings and began to revitalize the wine producing tradition in the area.

International recognition of the winery began in 1959 when, in view of General Eisenhower's upcoming visit to Spain, Castillo de Perelada was commissioned to provide the cava for the official banquet.

Years later, in 1967, the winery won three gold medals and two bronze in the V Sélection Mondiale des Vins, Alcohol et Liqueurs de París, which put the winery on the world map of wine making.

Vinos Bacchus, Nariz de Oro, Challenge International du Vin…the list goes on. In recent years Castillo de Perelada has continued to accumulate prize on prize, becoming one of the most prize-winning wineries in Spain.

In 1979 Castillo de Perelada started producing cava in full force. They bought a winery in Villafranca del Penedés and shortly after became one of best cava producers in the whole country.

PHILOSOPHY OF WORK

Castillo de Perelada's wines are made with grapes from their five vineyards, all located in the D.O. Empordà: Pont de Molins, Malaveïna, La Garriga, Finca Garbet and Espolla.

With almost 150 hectares of vineyards and a huge variety of soils ranging from slate, sand, and fluvial sediments to clay-silt and gravel… Castillo de Perelada have access to a whole range of grapes with different characteristics, perfect for making all their different types of wine. Especially their vinos de finca, wines made with grapes from only one plot of land, with strong personality provided by the land, making the most of the the different soils' and vineyards' features and characteristics.

They grow many different varieties. White Grenache, Macabeo, Moscatel, Xarel•lo and Chardonnay are the white grapes grown and Carignan, Red Grenache, Syrah, Tempranillo (known as Ull de Llebre in this region), Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot are the red varieities.

The winters are mild and the summers hot, although they are slightly alleviated by the winery's proximity to the sea.

The climate is subject to Tramontana, a strong Northerly wind which blows over the region.
