The Penedes Wine Region located between the Mediterranean Coast and Montserrat is located just an hour from Barcelona 30 minutes from Tarragona . It is famous for producing the best cava in the world and for its white wines. Wines from this region tend to be light and aromatic.
Fringed by magnificent beaches and cloaked by the mountains inland, offers a unique and singular countryside setting, characterized by its never-ending vineyards, scattered farmhouses, unique heritage sites and numerous wineries and cava producers that have brought international recognition to this area.
The wine region of Penedès is subdivided into various zones including Lower Penedès , where Vilafranca del Penedès is the main village; Middle Penedès, the main production area with unspoiled vineyard scenery and, which indeed is at the highest altitude, at about 800 meters. The majority of the wineries we work with are located in the Alt Penedès as this is where most of the fine wine is made.
The soil types across all three sub regions are fairly similar with limestone, sand and clay all present. The climate is Mediterranean and mild with an average year round temperature of about 60 degrees F. The North wind blows in winter, but is subdued by the Montserrat mountains which rise majestically above the wine country. With such a wide range of terrains, the Penedès is full of microclimates which the talented winemakers take advantage of to produce such high quality and varied wines.
There are many internationally famous brands and important wineries located in the Penedès such as Miguel Torres and Jean Leon. Torres, is one of the Spanish trailblazers of the Modern Spanish industry and is responsible for groundbreaking research on the Catalan grape varietals. Excellent Boutique Cava companies include Raventos Blanc, Gramona, and Pares Balta; while Freixenet and Codorniu are the two largest Cava companies (both have exceptionally beautiful wine cellars dating to the 1800´s)
