Situation

We are situated in the Alt Penedès area and we are 5 Kms. from Vilafranca, capital of the region, which historically was one of the most important Catalan towns.

The Alt Penedès, together with Garraf and Baix Penedès, forms a large natural and historic region which extends between Serralada Prelitoral and the sea and between Barcelona and Tarragona. Its particular geographical situation – between the sea and the mountains – makes the landscape warm and harmonious, fascinating and calm, full of Mediterranean light and very welcoming.

The Penedès, both for the quality and quantity of its vineyards, is the primary wine growing area of Catalonia. The majority of the white grapes are destined for the cava producers. The Penedès, with Sant Sadurní d’Anoia the largest producer, accounts for more than 90% of cava production of the peninsular and is well knowm world wide.

The Penedès has more than 26,000 hectares of vineyards and traditional varieties such as Xarelo, Macabeo, Tempranillo, Monastrell and also new varieties such as Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Riesling and Merlot are cultivated.
