WINERIES IN SPAIN
Whenever I visit Spain, I remember how much I love drinking this country’s wine. Spanish wines cost a fraction of what you would pay for a French or Italian wine, and they provide a friendlier, less pretentious experience. Despite having an ever growing number of Michelin star restaurants, I suspect that the only reason Catalunya has avoided super inflated prices is because there hasn’t been a Netflix documentary covering the region yet. This is something I’m perfectly ok with.
Spanish wine is approachable, classic and ready to enjoy every day. Unlike its expensive neighbors, Spanish wine evokes the feeling of being in on a well-kept secret: sitting on the terrazza at sunset, relaxing with some friends, olives, and pan con tomaquet (that’s bread with tomato).
One of Spain’s top wine regions is in Costa Brava, near the Cantorre. If you are a wine lover,We’ve mapped out some fun wineries in the region. They are grouped by proximity so you can plan your wine tasting tour accordingly!

This winery is proud of its traditional Catalan wine making, having been established in 1338! These wines are completely organic, without any extra additives or sulfites. If you go on a tour here, you will most likely be guided by one of the Mas Molla family members. The tour includes two wine tastings.
For eco lovers: they don’t label their wines! This keeps production costs down, and allows for local customers to return their bottles for monetary reimbursement. I am a huge fan of this: I return my juice bottles for a rebate, why shouldn’t I do the same for my wine? Super cool.

In their own words.
Our winemaking philosophy is to use sustainable farming methods to ensure that the wine is made with utmost respect to the
environment while leveraging modern-day technology and expertise.
This concept continues throughout the winery and through the production of the wines. Viticulture practices with strict regulations and a passion for winemaking have led EccociWine to become the first Spanish winery to be Carbon Zero certified. The result is a collection of high quality artisan wines that are terroir-driven, with a sense of place.
