    • Vineyard Information:

    We  only  use  the  oldest  vines  from  the  best  Penedès  sub-areas to  make  our cava.
    Old vines, with their deep roots, produce grapes enriched with the character of  the terroir where the roots are nourished by the spring rains that, year after year, guarantee the production and quality of  the harvest.
    To make our cava we only use grapes from vines that are at least 30 years old. 
    We personally manage each vine during the year, its fertilization, pruning, treatments and maturing and impose a strict limitation on the production of  each vine. We manually select: vine by vine, stock by stock, grape by grape.
    Selection, quality concentration and balance of  the grapes are the basis for the beginning of vinification.
