The figures

Covering an area of around 2,000 hectares, the average production of the area is 65,000 hl. Red wines make up around 60% of this total, rosé wines 17%, and white wines 19%; the remaining 4% is taken up by sweet wines (from Garnacha and Muscat grapes). Of the authorised wine production in the DO area, 50% is sold bottled — around 4 million bottles every year.

The external market is more variable. Empordà wines are currently being introduced into new markets; around 15% of production is exported, mainly to Germany, Switzerland, the USA, Holland, Norway, the UK, Belgium and Denmark.
