Masetplana winery is the result of a long family history dating back to 1826. It has gone from strength to strength thanks to the efforts of its most recent generations (Julián, his son Xavier Maset and now his grandson, Julià). Today, the company is one of the leading olive presses in Empordà in terms of quality and volume, while its wine and cava cellar has gained a strong reputation, combining innovation and tradition. All of the company’s products have their own genetic footprint and breathe the authenticity of Empordà thanks to its passion and personal approach, from the cultivation and care of the vines and olive trees to the more creative side, which comes to the fore when conceiving these products. The results of Masetplana’s work are based on patience and dedication, and on the wish to provide maximum enjoyment.
Mas Llunes winery, built in the year 2000 on the estate after which it is named, Mas Llunes is a modern winery that specialises in the production of wine from the grapes grown in the estate’s vineyards. It is owned by the Roig de Garriguella family, which has been closely involved in the world of winegrowing in Empordà for several generations. The winery was set up with the goal of continuing the family tradition, based on the conviction that Empordà is an outstanding area for obtaining top quality wines with personality, and on the wish to participate in the efforts of the county’s winemakers, who are contributing to increasing its prestige.
The Cooperativa Agrícola de Garriguella (Garriguella Agricultural Cooperative) was founded in 1963 and currently has 60 members. In recent years the cooperative has shifted its production and marketing strategy towards producing quality grapes and ensuring that its wines gain access to the best wine markets in the world. To achieve the desired quality the winery also applies state-of-the-art techniques. With regard to wine tourism, the cooperative offers visits to the vineyards and cellar, along with wine tastings. It also has a farm shop that sells wines, olive oil, honey, cured sausages, cheeses and other local products, with a tasting area for sampling them, accompanied by tomato-rubbed bread (pa amb tomàquet).
The most important winery in the not less famous Cadaqués: Celler Martin Faixó was estabilished in the year 2000, when the Martín Faixó family embarked on a pioneering project: the recovery of the vines in the Cap de Creus Natural Park. The first grape harvest took place four years later with the help of family and friends, and, continuing the tradition of previous generations, was carried out by hand. The winery’s first wines, christened as Cadac and Perafita, reached the market in 2007, certified with the Denomination of Origin Empordà seal. The wines of Martín Faixó, owe their name to the Sa Perafita farmhouse, a 14th centurybuilding located between Roses and Port de la Selva. The family purchased the building in 2003 with the aim of converting it into a rural hotel and winery. The wines that emerge from its barrels have real personality gained from a mineral-rich soil bathed by two seas and caressed by the tramuntana wind. These influences are perfectly embodied in the cellar’s top-of-the-range Cadac wine.
