Like many other Empordà villages that are located to the north of Figueres, Garriguella has an age-old connection to wine. However, it was the establishment of the Cooperativa in 1963 and later the designation of Empordà's protected origin status (DO) that were key for gradually improving the quality of its output, and helped it gain a foothold in the wine market. Currently, the vineyard combines selling in bulk with bottled wines, the latter of which are increasingly refined thanks to the progressive incorporation of new technologies and a focus on quality rather than quantity. In the same building that houses the cooperative, there's also a bar-restaurant, which is great for a bite to eat and a tasting of the wines on offer.
