To a large extent, the character of our wines is a result of the climate on the estate, with its mild winters and hot, dry summers. The proximity of the sea reduces the thermal variations, while the Catalan Coastal Range protects us from excess humidity, and the Serra d'en Compte and the Montserrat mountain ranges protect us from the cold air that blows down from the Pyrenees. Our estate's microclimate is defined by the Turó del Serral and its slopes, the lake and the woods.
The orography of our estate has its own specific features To the north of the Turó del Serral, near the woods surrounding our lake, the vines have the cool climate they need for long, slow ripening, which means the grapes maintain the optimum acidity for sparkling wines that are aged for a long time.Since 1872, when Josep Raventós Fatjó produced the first sparkling wine with a second fermentation in the bottle, the average temperature has been 15ºC and the average rainfall 550 litres per square metre. So it is not surprising that the grapes on this estate have been used to make exceptional sparkling wines.
