Perelada & Chivite


Perelada & Chivite is today a benchmark in the wine world. With presence in the main denominations of origin, more than 450 ha. of vineyards owned and more than 320 ha. of controlled exploitation , the link of our firm with the world of wine dates back to 1647, the date on which the first transaction of one of our wineries, Chivite, is documented.

The Suqué Mateu family , owner of Perelada & Chivite , seeks to maintain the identity of the various producing areas, promoting respect for the terroir and the landscapes where the wine-making activity of each of the brands that make up a complete collection of unique wines takes place.

The family's direct relationship with the world of wine goes back to the figure of Miguel Mateu , who bought the Perelada Castle (Empordà) in 1923 . One of his main illusions was to recover its winemaking tradition that traces its origins in the 14th century, when the Carmelite monks who lived in the monastery attached to the castle already produced an excellent wine with which they supplied the entire region.

Javier Suqué , grandson of the founder, presides over Perelada & Chivite and has been in charge of not only keeping this commitment alive with the production of quality wines, but also reinforcing it even more by seeking constant improvement.
