De la Finca


De la Finca sparkling wine is made with grapes from our oldest vines, planted using the gobelet system in 1964 in the Vinya dels Fòssils.

2020 harvest

Very low production harvest due to heavy rains. There were strong storms in autumn and winter that in the Conca del Riu Anoia gave us a good rain for the soils and did not cause material damage. But the spring continued to be very rainy, and the pressure of mildew could not be controlled, with losses of between 50 and 70% of production depending on the plot. Thanks to biodynamic farming techniques and phytotherapy, losses were no worse. However, the average production loss in the area will be 70%. Rainfall was above average at 743 mm and the average temperature was warm at 14.5ºC, 1ºC above average. This vintage will always be remembered as the vintage of silence -which will accompany the terrible pandemic-. The mildew made it one of the most sought-after vintages in the Anoia river basin. In spite of the difficulties of the vintage, the grapes showed good balance, good concertation and very good acidity.

"Despite this, in 2020 we will make little, but excellent wine; The scarcity of this vintage and the good quality of the wines may make it become the most sought-after vintage!" - Pepe Raventós

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.

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.
