IGP Gall del Penedès - Penedès Rooster
The Gall del Penedès is the only product in our area with the recognition of Protected Geographical Indication (IGP), granted by the Generalitat de Catalunya in 2016.
To have this distinction, the chickens of Gall del Penedès are raised in the geographical area protected by the IGP, within the Penedès territory. Breeding is free with a minimum duration of 98 days and is characterized by including grape seed in the diet, which gives the meat flavor and a high proportion of unsaturated fatty acids. This makes it richer in iron, tastier and more fibrous, and contains more antioxidants.
Currently, there are 4 breeders within the IGP Gall del Penedès, from whom you can buy a rooster directly to roast it with plums and pine nuts in the traditional way, or to get out of the ordinary and use the meat for cannelloni, rice and others.
