The vineyard

Its location, characteristics and management

The vineyard is situated on the plateau behind Calonge in the protected natural area “Les Gavarres”. It has a Mediterranean climate influenced by the Tramuntana and the breezes from the sea.

The grape harvest usually begins in early September and ends in mid-October. The vines grow on clay and slate soils with a mainly North – South orientation. The Red grape varieties that are used are Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. The white ones are Viognier, Marsanne and Roussane.

Plants are pruned during dormancy in winter, using the traditional “double Guyot” system.

During vegetative growth, we always work carefully removing excess buds, carrying out green pruning, cluster thinning and leaf-stripping.

We know that great wines are made in the vineyard and not in the cellar.
