The winery of l’Espelt is in the small town Vilajuïga, in the region of l’Empordà (Girona). This region is surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea and the Pyrenees mountains. It is a winery of familiar spirit, which is run by the third generation of viticulturists and wine experts.
The philosophy of this winery is based on the ecosystem’s respect and the preservation of local products. The first is reflected in the way they cultivate: by respecting the ecosystem which is deriving in an ecologic production. The second is reflected in the essence of their wines, made of native varieties of grapes and grown in sauló and slate soils, typical in this region.
