The soils

Heterogeneity

The Empordà DO has very heterogeneous land, the majority of which has a sandy texture and low organic material content. This is ideal for high quality winemaking. The soils are largely acidic, and the area varies in height from sea level to an altitude of 260 m.

DO Empordà - Sòls

It is important to bear in mind that in the Empordà plain the alluvial soils are predominant, whereas in the mountainous and mountainside areas the soils are slatey and granitic, with landscapes of outstanding natural beauty.
