Denominació d'Orígen Penedès
A centuries-old wine-growing region. Tasting the wines is feeling what Penedès is really about
The influence of the sun and the Mediterranean Sea make the Penedès region a privileged land for the cultivation of vineyards. Penedès is a land of wines and sparkling wines with more than 2,700 years of history. The large extensions of vineyards are primarily most of our landscape. The grape growing and wine making business are the economic engines of the region, with more than 6000 people involved and about 300 producing wineries in the area.
Xarel·lo is the flagship grape of the DO Penedès
It is the local variety par excellence and the one that has always been the most cultivated, because it best expresses our climate and terroir. Bright, unique, deep-rooted, rewarding, for young wines, for long aging ... the essence of the region.
Penedès is renown for the quality of its white wines, but the constant desire to innovate and recover the extint local varieties has led to more and more red wines of exquisite quality. It should also be noted that DO Penedès is the region with the highest organic production in the country.
