OUR LAND

The birthplace of our wines

LOCATION AND CLIMATE

Gramona is located in the Alt Penedés region, 30 kms south of Barcelona. The climate is typically Mediterranean, with hot, dry summers and mild winters.  Our vineyards are protected during the harsher winters by the majestic, rocky Montserrat mountain to the north.

SOILS

In general, our soils are clay- and calcareous-loam, with a few areas of alluvial soil found near the Anoia River and slate soil closer to Montserrat. These soils are also characterised by the presence of têtes de poupées, calcareous formations of bacterial origin, which mineralize, refresh and enrich the subsoil and therefore the vine.

‘Wine is a melody in which the soil is the score, the plant is the instrument and the wine grower is the musician’.

VINEYARD PARCELS

La Plana, Font Jui, Mas Escorpí, and La Solana are some of the vineyards from which we source our Xarel·lo, Macabeo, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir grapes.

We grow as many as 15 different grape varieties for the two denominaciones de origen under which we work: the Cava DO for sparkling wines made using the traditional method and the Penedés DO for the still wines.

ALIANZAS POR LA TIERRA

We work around 270 hectares using biodynamic principles. Of these, 35 belong to the Gramona family and the rest come from Alianzas por la Tierra (Partnership for the Earth), the association of wine growers established in 2015 and headed by Gramona, which shares a common philosophy of working the vineyards in an environmentally-friendly manner. The association’s members have collectively and collaboratively followed a gradual, natural evolution intended to bring new life to the soil and the countryside to which it belongs.
