    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 Empordà.

    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 Empordà.

    Making the best of the excellent land and climate in the Empordà 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 Empordà region, pitch&putt, practice areas and the Wine Spa.


    Technology and tradition combine to turn grape into must and must into wine. Technological advances ensure that only the best grapes are used and that the wine is made under the strictest quality standards, while tradition provides experience in the art of winemaking.

    The wine is first aged in the bodega's* 5,000 oak casks and the aroma and flavour of the wood blend harmoniously with the fruity character of the wine when later aged in the bottle.

    Castillo Perelada currently owns over 150 hectares of vineyards in the Empordà Designation of Origin region. With 22 hectares of red clay soil, Finca Malaveïna is one of the bodega's* most representative vineyards, and its unique characteristics lend the wine a distinctive character and personality. 


    Outstanding among the wines produced by the company are the Gran Claustro and Don Miguel Mateu, both meeting the conditions for an “excellent” quality wine. Also outstanding is the Gran Claustro special reserve cava, produced with all the nobility imposed by such an ancient tradition, aged in the centuries-old cellars of the Convent del Carme. The Champagne method is rigorously and professionally adhered to, with just the addition of the charisma that characterises the Castillo Perelada.


    The winegrowing and oenological, historical and artistic heritage of Castillo Perelada in this small medieval spot in the Empordà means visitors can combine the pleasure of exploring oenological culture with the delights of strolling through the historical monumental ensemble of Castillo Perelada and the Convento del Carmen.

    Castillo Perelada offers visitors various visiting and wine-tasting options.
