EMPORDA

It will always be difficult to understand why the region didn’t keep its original title of Empordà–Costa Brava or at least select the more famous and easier to pronounce Costa Brava name. The region is already invisible to wine lovers, and with increasing attention being given to France’s next–door regions of Collioure and Banyuls, it seems an odd choice. As with southern France, winds sweeping down from the north can be a critical viticultural element; the Tramontano wind can be a violent force. A mix of traditional and international grapes thus far has produced a range of qualities, but there are many excellent wines, and tourists are advised to visit the beautiful, fourteenth century Castillo de Perelada.
