BACKGROUND: Our state is located in the Penedès region, the most important viticultural area in Catalonia. The climate here is typical Mediterranean with warm summers and mild winters besides a lot of sunshine exposure which ensures optimal veraison of the grapes. The annual average rainfall is 525 mm (around 30 days per year). The result is a real paradise for grape-growing, where we cultivate native grape varieties to produce high quality sparkling wines.
