El Penedès

·····

From Rovira Roja to Mata de Abelló

Our origins in the Penedès are in the Rovira Roja, in the house that has borne witness to the five siblings of the current generation grow up and where the Ametller family has part of the vineyards inherited from previous generations. Also of origin, we work in Sant Martí Sarroca, Torrelles de Foix, Font-Rubí and Vilafranca del Penedès where we have traditionally cultivated varieties for the production of Cava, such as Xarel·lo, Macabeo and Parellada.

“We have been working on the family lands since 1830 and the current generation feels responsible for this legacy, caring for the landscape and its fruit. The vineyard is our origin, our identity.”

MATA DE ABELLÓ

The vineyards of our legacy are located in the northernmost part of the Penedès; and over the years we have incorporated new vine plots in the easternmost part of the wine region between the municipalities of Gelida and Sant Llorenç d’Hortons. It is there where we have discovered and quickly fallen in love with – Mata de Abelló, the cradle of the best Xarel·los in the area, and we bought it together with two of the neighbouring estates: Batlle Vell and Cal Font.

RECOVERING
OLD TRADITIONS

Seeing the consolidation of the Priorat Project and the incorporation of new vineyards in the Penedès, the Ametller family has decided to resume the tradition of bottling in the territory of origin. Quality raw materials are available along with old vines and new plantations that look to the future with the aim of consolidating this dream of continuing the legacy of making wines at home, as has been done for many generations uninterruptedly.

Today in the Penedés, we have an area of more than 200 hectares, of which more than half is planted with vines. In the northern Penedès, next to Sant Martí Sarroca, Font-Rubí and Torrelles de Foix, we work on plots located between 300 and 500 meters above sea-level, and in the eastern Penedès, on the plots of Mata de Abelló, Batlle Vell and Cal Font, the vines are located at a height between 120 and 180 metres above sea-level.

The new vineyards have permitted us to diversify the grape varieties we planted, as we now have the Garnacha, Syrah or Pinot Noir varieties. Furthermore, we have also expanded our production styles and the current range offers still wines with a clear bet on Xarel·lo, and the birth of new sparkling wines is coming about too.
