DOTZEVINS

PENEDÈS

The grapes of this wine come from the Sierra del Garraf, where the calcareous soil and the sea winds strongly mark the wine´s character. We make our Dotze DO Penedès by using an organic farming process. Xarelo as the main grape, extremely characteristic of this DO, is blended with other varieties such as Macabeo or Chardonnay which are varieties that have adapted very well to this region.

It is the largest DO in Catalonia with more than 26,000 hectares of vineyards located between the provinces of Barcelona and Tarragona, with Vilafranca del Penedès as the main wine center. 4,088 wine growers, 152 wineries and an average annual production of 32 million liters, of which 35% is exported. The main varieties, predominantly white grapes are Xarelo, Macabeo, Parellada and Chardonnay.

Geographically located in the Garraf area, in a calcareous territory belonging to the southern part of the coastline, the terroir is situated in between the Penedès plains and the Mediterranean Sea. A landscape surrounded by hills, it is an area with limited cultivation.

Slow fermentation in stainless tanks at 15 ° C with natural yeasts from the same grapes. The fermentation ended in November. The wine remains 6 months in a stainless steel tank. It is filtered before the bottling process.
