Food and Wine Routes

BEYOND WINE

By Redacció Photo Javier Almar

The Empordà is a landscape that has been built through time. There's no greater pleasure than diving into the passing of the seasons in every piece of land, passing cloud, and gentle wave. The Mas Geli winery in the Masos de Pals is a privileged spot surrounded by the mountains of Begur and Montgrí. Lluís, part of this family project, guides us on a walk through the vineyards while telling us about the gravelly land, the salinity of the sea breeze, and the underground aquifer. He speaks of what the wine will become: a living object bathed in its environment, the essence of the land.
