Penedès Wine

 

Penedès is considered the most important wine region in Catalunyia (Catalonia), and is located near Barcelona. The area is known for producing sparkling Cava, which began production in the 1870’s, and is produced in styles ranging from value driven sparklers to vintage releases made in the Methode Champenoise. While these wines get most of the spotlight, the area also produces significant still whites and reds. 
 
It is divided into three regions: 
 
*Baix (Bajo) Penedes, the warmest region, with production of red wines made from Garnacha, Monastrell and Cariñena. 
*Medio Penedes, which has the highest amount of production for being the main source of the Cava grapes Macabeo, Paralleda and Xarell-lo as well as reds made from Ull de Liebre (Tempranillo), Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.  
*Alt Penedes has the highest elevation and grows Paralleda for Cava, as well as excellent whites made from Chardonnay, Riesling and Gewürztraminer Read more »

  • Segura Viudas Brut NV

    Snoothrank:

    Dry / Crispy by Freixenet in Spain very clean refreshing,--as one who searches high and low for inexpensive, good tasting Bruts I enjoy this one regularly. Buying a few bottles a week won't break the bank, and I enjoy Brut champagnes as a less filling, lighter alternative to beer, as well as a less-regretful morning after effect to red wine. Read More

  • Cabernet-Sauvignon Jean Leon Reserva Penedes Espagne 1998

    Snoothrank:

    Had this on 11 Jan, 2014. Fifth bottle of six. In my cellar since March 2006. The 1998 vintage has developed very well, a real swan has developed from an overly tight and tannin filled wine years ago. Now smooth, balanced, but still with a lot of solid structure, a cabernet sauvigon at its aged best. One more bottle to go. Read More
