Designation of Origin Penedès

Vineyards in the twilight

A territory and a wine of quality with a Designation of Origin (DO) that offers an inviting and captivating experience.

The Penedès is a natural region, made up of the Alt Penedès, Baix Penedès and Garraf regions.

This region extends over the length and breadth of an area 1,557km2 following the form of the Catalan Pre-coastal Depression and seeking boundaries between the Pre-Coastal Mountains and the Mediterranean Sea. It is precisely these natural boundaries that allow the development of a climate that is truly ideal for winegrowing: the presence of the sea along one side and the Montserrat massif, protecting the Penedès from the cold winds of the north, generating a microclimate that is ideal for growing vines and the production of quality wines.

Wines from the best vineyards in the region make up a Designation of Origin where the star grape variety is Xarel·lo
