Homes for Spanish Wine Lovers

Invest in your passion by buying a home in one of Spain’s most sought-after wine regions. Here we look at what’s on offer in Alella, just north of Barcelona, Penedès and the Empordà on the Costa Brava.

The dream of buying your very own Spanish vineyard may not be as distant as you think. Affordable country estates with vines and wine-making production facilities can be discovered in some of Spain’s most beautiful regions. We take a look at three of them – Alella in the Maresme, Penedès and the Empordà region on the Costa Brava.

Alella (Maresme)

Alella, Maresme’s most prized wine-growing region, is one of the smallest D.O or appellations in Spain, with just 300 hectares of vineyards and only 9 registered wineries. Only 20 minutes from Barcelona by car or train, Alella is particularly well known for its Cavas which have been served in some of the best restaurants in the world.

Wineries in the region are focused on quality and owners are passionate about what they do. The most important white grape varieties in Alella are Xarel·lo (or Pansa Blanc) and Chardonnay, whilst the reds tend to be blends of Merlot, Garnacha, and Tempranillo.
