Wine has a long cultural tradition in Catalonia, constituting a historic wine region with its own peculiarities. The sector is regulated by the Catalan Institute of Vine and Wine. Catalunya has a winemaking tradition of more than 2,500 years. A mild climate, with summers that are not very hot, dry and mild winters and the Mediterranean Sea, provide a perfect setting for making high quality wines.
Traditionally, white wines and liquor wines have stood out: stale wine, Grenache wine, Muscat wine, vi blanc. Today the production of white wine is the majority in Alella, the Penedes and Tarragona, while red wine in the rest.
