Ençà is a wine inspired by the legend of the mermaid and the shepherd and the poem "L'Empordà" by Joan Maragall "La sirena se feu un xic ençà i un xic ençà el pastor de la muntanya". The image of the wine reflects a love story that Empordalia has transferred to the world of wine as a perfect synergy between two grape varieties, Grenache and Carignan. A tribute to the land of L'Empordà.

They are harvested in September at the optimum time of ripeness. Maceration and fermentation for 25 days at a temperature not exceeding 24°C. The wine rests between 3-6 months in French oak barrels, then it is aged in the bottle.
Empordàlia is the union of small producers from the region of L'Empordà, who have been working the land for many generations. They stand out both for the production of wines and extra virgin olive oils.
Wine culture reached Catalonia around the sixth century BC thanks to the most important Greek colony in the country, Empúries.
Four centuries later, the wines of the Emporiae territories were well-known in domestic markets, in other provinces of the Roman Empire and in the metropolis itself.
