The Empordà is a small area where there is a variety of soils found in few other places in the world. Slate slopes, Sandy valleys. Fluvial sediment, clay-silt, gravel soils… Lands that have borne witness to how different civilizations cultivated the art of wine. The heterogeneity of the land on which the vines grow allows Perelada to obtain grapes with a wide range of nuances.
41 hectares of flat silt and clay land, with sand and gravel and neutral pH.
The La Garriga estate is home to Perelada’s oldest vines: Garnatxa and Samsó vines more than 50 years old.
The estate is also home to our experimental plot, a single hectare which we use to test the adaptability of different experimental varieties and rootstocks to the Empordà.
