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.
