Xarel-lo

Clos Lentiscus

Since 2002 Manel Avinyo has been producing wine under the Name Clos Lentiscus.

Gala

If you drive up into the clouds in Penedès you will find the vines of Josep Mitjan and Eric Stride. At 700m above sea level, the vineyards stand nearly as tall as its Swedish owner Eric Stride who left the Nordics in search of the sun. He now lives in Barcelona and the 50ha of vineyard found 2 hours South West of the city in Vilafranca del Penedès is overseen by vigneron Josep Mitjan and his family who also own neighboruing Loxarel. The name Gala was inspired by Salvador Dalis wife who carried the same name. Plantings are predominantly Xarelo, with strictly no dosage.

Porcellánic

Ton Rimbau likes to do things differently. This you can tell as soon as you see his wines, encased in his distinctive porcelin bottles, hence the name Porcellánic. Ton is a stickler for quality, if one vintage the grapes don't meet his quality standards, the whole lot with be thrown out. Nature has said no this time. As is common practice in Penedès, Ton used to make wine in bulk, and sell off the rest of his grapes to the local cooperative before he decided to be a winemaker himself.

Partida Creus

Massimo Marchiori and Antonella Gerosa are originally architects from Piemonte who resettled in Barcelona for work before eventually moving out of the city in search of a slower life. They found beautiful home in Massís de Bonastre in the Baix Penedés, but there was only one problem: they couldn't find the kind of wine they wanted to drink. So they decided to start making it. They started looking around for vineyards in the local area, most of which were abandoned due to their old, low yielding vines planted with forgotten varieties.
