Salvador Dalí and Miguel Mateu corresponded prolifically for years. Thanks to many of these letters, now kept in the castle library, we have been able to use authentic Dalinian typography on the Torre Galatea cava.
When Salvador Dalí received guests at his house in Port Lligat, he always offered them a glass of Perelada cava. For many years, the Perelada Castle was witness to the close friendship which united the brilliant Salvador Dalí and Miguel Mateu, founder of our bodega. Perelada, in cooperation with the Gala-Salvador Dalí Foundation, has created a red wine to pay tribute to this relationship.
