Empordà

Empordà is a DO (Denominación de Origen) wine region in Catalonia, in the far north-eastern corner of Spain. It borders the southern French region of Roussillon. Emporda was accorded DO status in 1972, when it was known as Empordà-Costa Brava. The idea behind this name was to tie the region to the popular Costa Brava holiday destination. The DO's shortened title – derived from the ancient Greek name for the zone, Emporiae – came into effect in 2006. Winemaking in Empordadates back to the 6th Century BC. In the Middle Ages, flourishing vineyards tended by monks and nuns from nearby monasteries and abbeys produced wines that became popular and attracted many settlers to the area. But in the late 19th Century, phylloxera dealt a hefty blow, and many of the affected terraced vineyards have never been replanted.
