As a parallel activity, the wine fair will include, for the first time, eleven wine tastings in settings such as the terrace of the Girona History Museum, the courtyard of the Jewish History Museum, the Art Museum, Casa Masó, the old church of Sant Lluc, the Alemanys gardens and one of the towers in the old city walls, offering panoramic views over the city.

The wine tastings will take place from Wednesday 1 until Saturday 4 June at different times (at 12 pm, 5 pm and 7 pm). Tickets cost €7, and can be purchased from the DO Empordą website [ DO EMPORDĄ ]
Each wine tasting will feature a different vineyard from the DO Empordą region. The ticket includes entrance to the wine tasting and five tickets and a glass for the wine fair to be held in Plaēa de la Independčncia.
