2021 harvest

Extremely dry and warm.

The 2021 vintage was extremely dry and temperate. After a 2020 vintage with a memory of rainfall, the cycle began with full soil water reserves. The entire cycle saw little rain and normal temperatures, with a cold winter and mild spring without heat waves. The reserves from the previous cycle and the good structure of the soils helped the plants to have a good borade and a good vegetative development without any pressure from fungi. The heat wave arrived at the beginning of summer and lasted into July. We had a drop in production due to the drought, a healthy and concentrated harvest. Throughout the agricultural year we had a high rainfall of 326 mm (the average of the last 20 years is 517.8 mm. The average temperature was 15.2 °C, similar to the average of the last 20 years).

Let's start cycle with soils full of water that helped to a good plant development. Classic and exceptional vintage.


Macabeu, Xarel·lo and Parellada

The plants on the Vinya dels Fòssils vineyard come from the massal selection performed by Manuel Raventós Domènech in 1888. Creator of the Penedès sparkling wine formula by combining the three native grape varieties, Macabeu, Xarel·lo and Parellada, Manuel Raventós also experimented by planting small separate plots. He took cuttings from the vines that produced the best grapes and used them to create new plantations.

Harvested after 08 de Septiembre. Goblet-trained vines since 1964 and Espalier-trained vines since 2002.
MacabeuHarvested after 20th of September. Espalier-trained vines since 1994.
ParelladaHarvested after 14th of September. Goblet-trained vines planted in 1994.


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.
