La Costa Brava, the rocky, rugged coastline that runs along Spain's northeastern shore, is far better known for its lovely seaside resorts and wave-lapped beaches than for its wines. Yet just inland stretch the rolling vineyards of the DO Empordà-Costa Brava. One of Spain's smaller Denominations of Origin, it has just under 3,000 hectares under vine and has earned a reputation in recent years for planting a wide range of local and international varieties. It is a unique and beautiful region in Spain to enjoy a food and wine gourmet tour.
Wine has been made here since the 5th century BC, when Phoenicians first colonized the coast. The DO has never been one of Spain's best-known, but the exciting wines being made here in recent years aim to change that. Traditionally, the focus was on small, family-owned cellars specialized in sweet wines or easy-to-drink rosé wines made with local grapes like Cariñena. These days, it's the young red wines that are garnering fame for their expressiveness and surprising quality.
The combination of seascape and rural countryside makes Empordà Costa Brava one of the loveliest wine regions in the country. The vines are planted at low altitudes (200 meters maximum) and are constantly caressed with the gentle breezes of the Mediterranean. Occasionally, they're submitted to the harsher whims of a cold northern wind that sweeps down from the Pyrenees and prevents the region from getting too hot. Nearly all the vines are staked for protection.
Maybe you can understand why Artist as Dali are so surrealistic.
