PARAJE FONT DE JUI
Paraje Font de Jui consists of about 22.5 hectares, among them, 15 are Xarel·lo and 7.5 Macabeo. They spread from the Anoia River (La Plana, 100 metres above sea level) to the Mas Escorpi hill (350 metres above sea level), which overlooks the town of Sant Sadurní, and its southern slopes. Its soil is clay-limestone: sandy layers along the river and very rocky in the higher and drier areas. Gramona’s organic and biodynamic approach on the Paraje, as with all of their land, enriches life in the soil, and helps the plants to better adapt to climate change.
It is a Bordeaux-style paraje, a “chateau” concept, grouping plots of more than one grape variety, essential to the wine’s identity, around the Celler Batlle winery, located at the heart of the paraje. This concept is the opposite of, or differs from the “clos” of Burgundy, where the vineyards are not necessarily next to the winery. Both concepts, tied to a specific landscape and place, are part of the Cava de Paraje concept.
