The influence of the sun and the Mediterranean sea make the Penedès a privileged territory for winemaking. The Penedès region is wide and open, covering a long strip of land between the sea and the mountains, half-way between Barcelona and Tarragona. The denomination of origin Penedès has a great diversity of microclimates, result of its coastal proximity and its altitude. The climate is typically Mediterranean, i.e., soft and warm.
The DO Penedès, widely recognized for its quality in white wines, combines a range of wines made from traditional varieties (macabeu, xarel·lo and parellada) with others who over the years have been introduced and successfully acclimated (chardonnay, riesling, sauvignon blanc...).The red wines of the Penedès improve with the passage of time if they are kept in appropriate conditions. According to the harvest and the type of grape, they can evolve between 4 and 5 years.
