Wine has been made at the Castillo Perelada
since the Middle Ages, as shown in several documents and
parchments from the period to be found in the library. When
Miguel Mateu bought this ensemble of monuments in 1923, one of
his primary objectives was to revitalize the wine producing
tradition, a tradition that is more alive than ever these days
and which has incorporated the most modern technology to create
wines that make full use of the nuances of the soils and vines
of the Empordā.
With its origins going back to the Middle Ages, the grandeur of
the Peralada Castle makes it one of the most emblematic
landmarks of the Empordā.
Making the best of the excellent land and climate in the Empordā
region, Castillo Peralada is nowadays one of the leading
wineries in Spain.
The East wing of the castle is fortified, with two impressive
towers at the corners. The image of these two towers, reflected
in the nearby lake, has become the symbol of the wines and cavas
of Castillo Perelada
The company has also a five-star hotel (see
Hotel Golf Peralada) with
splendid views of the Pyrenees and golf course, ideal for
relaxing and sport. Two restaurants, a wine bar and the Garden
Bar in the summer to savor the full flavors of the Empordā
region, pitch&putt, practice areas and the Wine Spa.
