DO Emporda, is located in the very North-East corner of Catalunya and has around 2000 ha under vine. It is a non-continuous territory split between Alt-Emporda (which runs up to the foot of the Pyrenees and has granitic slate soil) and Baix-Emporda (which bulges into the med around the town of Figueres and has sandy-alluvial soils). However, perhaps the biggest influence on the vines, in which Carignan (Samsó), black and white Grenache and Cabernet dominate, is the powerful, cold Tramontana wind from the north. Reaching speeds of 120 kmph it is integral in keeping the vines fresh, reducing Mildew and making organic farming just that little bit easier.

La Vinyeta is a collection of small vineyards and olive groves in the heart of the Empordá, in an area called Mollet de Peralada. A young, family owned business it began some 15 years ago when Josep Serra purchased two old Carignan and Grenache vineyards – aged 55 and 80 years old – and kept on planting. The winery now stands at a reasonable 30 hectares. It was a few years later in 2006 that the winery was built and the first vintages of were made from over 10 varieties. In 2009 La Vinyeta became one of the first vineyards to adopt Integrated farming in the region which it has continued to develop and evolve over time.
