VINS EL CEP 'OT DE VINS EL CEP' XAREL-LO PENEDÈS
VINS EL CEP

100% Xarel-lo from vineyards located in Can Miquel de les Planes, Penedès, Barcelona. The vines were planted in 1974 on Calcareous sandy soils and grow in a Mediterranean climate. 

Vins el Cep is the pioneering producer of biodynamic and organic estate grown still and sparkling wines in Penedès. This was the first sparkling producer in Spain to employ biodynamic practices at their estate. The viticulture at Can Miquel de les Planes is certified organic. 

The winemaking for this wine is very gentle, using a low-pressure pneumatic press, with only a 45-50% must extraction, representing the most elegant percentage of the must. The balance of the must is sold off to large, local commercial wineries. Fermentation begins spontaneously and is carried out in small stainless steel tanks. The wine spends four months sur lie with battonage in stainless steel. Certified vegan winemaking.
