One of the most historical and traditional vineyards in the Empordà
Santamaria is one of the most historical and traditional vineyards in the Empordà. And also the place where the region's first 'crianza' wine (a younger variety, aged for at least two years) was created: Gran Recosind, aged in American oak barrels. While the current structure of the company dates from 1955, the original cellar (an architectural gem in the Romanesque-Gothic style) was founded in the 16th century. In 1877, Gregori Artizà (who, incidentally, appears on the label) earned the diploma at the 'Exposición Nacional Vinícola - Medalla de Perfección' (National Winery Exposition - Medal of Perfection). If you're a fan of wine history, at the same cellar you can visit a museum all about the family. Currently, the production of Santamaria is focused on crianza wines bottled with the label of Grand Recosind - quality wines that have an intense red colour and a lot of aroma.
