These are the grapes varieties that we use to elaborate our products:
macabeo

Macabeo

Compact bunch and smooth skin. They produce a wine with a delicate aroma. It is resistant to spring frosts and its cultivation has been increased. This variety is found mainly in the Central Penedès and is the grape which contributes a fruity aroma and rich sap to Cava. It produces dry and fruity white wines which are considered as the most typical of the Penedès.

   
xarel.lo

Xarel.lo

The total acidity and consistence of this grape makes it the number one in top personality. Grains characteristic is their thick skin making this grape resistant to maladies. One of the traditional varieties, from the Lower and Central Penedès.

parellada

chardonnay

Chardonnay

Produces very aromatic wines, full-bodied, with high acidity. Introduced into the Penedès during the seventies and acclimatised successfully, Chardonnay sprouts very early and it is sensitive to frost and maladies so it is the first one harvested in the middle of August. It is used in the making of Cava because it contributes with a delicate fragrance. With this variety, young and very fruity white wines are made.
