Since 2002 vineyards planted in terraces in the inland of Colera’s boundary bore the grapes and finally the wines of the winery.

The Empordà, an appellation of origin certainly on trend worldwide after the renowned wine critic Robert Parker and his right hand Jay Miller kept their eyes on it at the beginning of 2011. The dynamism of Empordà wines flourishes due to the excellent climate and pedology conditions, the landscape and the millenary tradition.

The dry stone terraces and the slate of the soil beside the clime marked by the strong north wind are intrinsic features of the village of Colera. From all the experts is known that these peculiarities favour the production of wines of great quality. The inquisitiveness of Hugas de Batlle family brought them to launch this initiative to extract the best of these favourable wine conditions and to disclose varieties like Carinyena (also known as Carenyana or Samsó) and the Black Grenache. Their project is a long term one and wants to highlight the place where the grapes forming Coma Fredosa and Falguera are cultivated. The enterprise is continually being enlarged: on one side with the new wines 30.70 and Coma de Vaixell and on the other side with the opening last year of the wine cellar. The wine cellar is the first one in the locality since decades ago. Thanks to its privileged east location, near the seaside, in the centre of Colera’s village, it is also the first one of all Catalan wine cellars which sees the sun rising every day.
