Back in the year 2000, the Martín Faixó family from Cadaqués embarked on recovering and replanting vineyards in Cap de Creus Natural Park. Four years later the first grapes were picked, by hand, on the same land that their ancestors had worked before them. Their first official release, with DO Empordà certification, was not until 2007: Cadac 04 and Perafita 05 red wines, Picapoll 07 white, and the dessert wines. A year later their rosé went on sale.

The family’s ties with the world of wine date back a long way. The mother’s side of the family (Faixó) has always been engaged in fishing and farming, cultivating vines and later olive trees, while the father (Martín) comes from a family of restaurateurs. The present generation has combined both family vocations with the creation of the Martín Faixó winery.

The winery lays claim to 14 hectares of vineyards on a mineral slate soil where varieties grown include Red Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignan, Merlot, Piquepoul and Muscat of Alexandria. Annual production has reached 50,000 bottles. In 2010, the family extended their range of wines and ventured into wine tourism. Nowadays, visitors to the winery have the chance to gain an insight into the world of vines and wine and discover the Costa Brava’s main tourist attractions at the same time.
