De Nit


“Looking for colour, I found Monestrell from the western part of the Serral hill, which provides complexity without losing freshness” Pepe Raventós

De Nit

2022 harvest

A warm, dry year, with very healthy grapes.

A warm year, with a strong drought, which brought us very low yields and very healthy grapes, due to the low fungal pressure. A year in which drought has been the protagonist of the viticultural cycle (357 mm of rainfall, when the average is 520 mm). This meant that the grapes did not develop as well as in other years and the plant did not produce as much fruit due to the lack of water, resulting in losses of approximately 20%. The plots with the most hours of sunshine were the hardest hit. Extreme years give us very concentrated grapes that maintain a very good acidity balance: very high acidity at ripening.


Early harvest due to the long heat wave. Production down over 20%, but very healthy grapes.

MacabeuHarvested after the 11 of August. Goblet and Espalier-trained vines between 1982 and 2000.
ParelladaHarvested after the 02 of September. Goblet-trained vines in 1969 and 1989.
MonastrellHarvested the 1 of September. Goblet-trained vines in 1974.


Native variety that is planted on 50% of the entire estate. It is the first to bud, has the longest cycle of all our varieties, and at the harvest has the best sugar-acidity-intensity balance. It is our seal of identity, the variety that allows the long ageing of our sparkling wines, due to its good agricultural performance and its aromatic and taste potential.


Delicate, very versatile variety that needs extremely precise winegrowing in order to achieve the best expression. With a short cycle, it is the first variety to be harvested on the estate. Depending on its location on the estate, this same variety can produce two totally different expressions due to the orientation, the soil and the plant material.


Moderately vigorous, rustic but at the same time sensitive to rain during the ripening period. The white harvest always ends with this variety. Native variety well-adapted to the high parts of the Penedès. The Parellada on our estate gives a touch of delicacy to our sparkling wines.


Mediterranean red, late-budding variety, which is sensitive to fungal diseases. Since 2006, we have used it in the De Nit coupage, to which it adds an aromatic complexity, silkiness and structure in the mouth, as well as an elegant touch of colour.
