The vineyards which produce the exceptional grapes that go into our Rosé Vintage are located in the Upper Penedès at an average altitude of 450 meters, with a more continental climate.
This terroir has poor, slightly calcareous soils with poor water retention and a high content of disintegrated slate rock. The 20 year old vines are grown respecting sustainability and environmentally-friendly principles. Each cluster is selected on the vine and picked by hand.
Rosé Vintage is a rare, exclusive cava: vineyard production is 7,000 kg per hectare, below the usual average, which typically ranges from 10,000 to 12,000 kg/hectare.
