The Vineyards

04_montserrat_w_captionFreixenet’s vineyards are planted to take advantage of the full range of terroir and climate in the Penedès region of Catalonia, the area where most of Spain’s cavas are made. From the dry, cool mountains of the north, to the humid and warm coastal areas to the south, our vineyards bear the fruit of many varieties of Vitis vinifera. In addition to cultivating our own expansive vineyards, Freixenet also maintains exclusive relationships with vine growers throughout the region.

From the Parellada and Macabeo grapes of the cooler, higher regions, to the Xarel-lo and Trepat grapes that thrive in the warm coastal zone, with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in between, Freixenet wines reflect the excellent chalky soils and prime growing conditions that shape the character of each bottle.
