The Santamaria winery is situated right next to the historical centre of Capmany. The origins of this family company date back to around 1877, when Gregori Artizà obtained the medal for perfection in the National Wine Exhibition. Two wine ageing cellars can be visited on the estate, one dating from 16th century, built in the Romanesque/Gothic style, and the other dating from the turn of the 20th century. There is also a museum in which the family’s old utensils are on display, along with all sorts of documents, such as an 1879 decree in which the civil governor of Girona appoints Gregori Artizà to monitor and detect phylloxera in the province. The winery, which has been producing the Gran Recosind wine since 1980, was one of the first to implement oak barrel ageing for DO Empordà wines.
