Nestled in the heart of Empordà, La Vinyeta is a small production winery and olive grower driven by a young spirit of hard work and big dreams. The project’s origins can be found in two old Carignan and Grenache vineyards which Josep and Marta bought from an old winemaker from the town. They started producing their first bottles of wine in 2006. Today, La Vinyeta is one of the most highly regarded projects in the area, not just for the quality and diversity of the wines but also for their dynamism, humility, and commitment.

This is a red blend made from old vines of Carignan (65%), and Grenache (35%). The vineyards are organically farmed, without artificial irrigation.

La Vinyeta is a relatively new company, established in 2002 in the centre of the Alt Empordà region, in Mollet de Peralada, a township devoted to the cultivation of vineyards and olive trees. The project started with the acquisition of a couple of old stocks, between 55 and 80 years old, of the Samsó and Garnacha varieties. Since then more vines have been planted, and La Vinyeta cultivates a total of thirty hectares.

In 2009, La Vinyeta became one of the first wineries to adopt Integrated Production, an environmentally friendly cultivation system. The team at La Vinyeta possesses an innovative spirit and likes to share with others their knowledge of wine and the wild landscape that surrounds them.
