TERROIRS

Thousands of years back, these lands were part of the seabed, and, in fact, there were already vines growing here over 500 years ago. Wine growing is therefore an age-old legacy.

Ours are mostly old vines, located on the Slopes of l’Anoia and spread over the municipalities of Sant Sadurní d’Anoia, Gelida and Sant Llorenç d’Hortons. These are vines with a strong personality, a quality needed for our terroir wines.

Their moderately deep roots feed from clay-loam soil, which is well structured, porous and contains an active level of fauna. Thanks to organic or biodynamic growing, these lands provide life and habitat to ants, worms, and all kinds of living organisms, enhancing the natural balance that the land requires.

The grapes grow on gently undulating slopes, crossed by deep streams and embraced by a typically Mediterranean climate with moderately warm and dry summers and mild winters with erratic rainfall. The native varieties, such as Macabeo, Xarel·lo, Parellada and Tempranillo, which occupy much of our vineyards, are joined by non-native varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Merlot or Syrah which enable us to achieve the desired balance in our blends.
