Bodega Loxarel is a winery situated in the small town of Vilobí del Penedés, in the Penedés, who use organic and biodynamic farming to produce excellent cavas and wines that reflect the character of the terroir.


HISTORY OF THE WINERY
The history of Bodega Loxarel is linked with the history of Finca Can Mayol. The Mitjans family have been cultivating their 22 hectares of land for 5 generations with the Xarel•lo variety, a grape which had always been intended for bulk wine sales.


The production of cavas and wines at Bodega Loxarel started off almost like a game. Josep Mitjans, at only 16 years of age, made along with his friends 1000 bottles of cava using the perfect conditions provided by a bomb shelter built below the aerodome in Vilobí del Penedés, an aerodome used during the Spanish Civil War.


The experiment went well, and not long after, in 1987, he founded the current winery: Bodega Loxarel. The name is a play on letters with the word Xarel.lo, the most grown variety in the Penedés region.
Since then, Loxarel has been dedicated to improving its production methods, with the objective of increasing the final quality of each of their wines, whilst still remaining faithful to the authenticity of the terroir.


But implementing this idea has not always been easy.
Almost 25 years after joining the D.O. Cava, and after some disagreements with the Regulatory Council regarding the production techniques and varieties allowed, Bodega Loxarel decided to leave the D.O. Cava and join the D.O. Penedés.
This step would reinforce Bodega Loxarel's philosophy of reflecting the authenticity of the terroir in each one of their bottles in a unique way.


PHILOSOPHY OF WORK
Bodega Loxarel is located on the estate Can Mayol, a 22 hectare estate where they grown the indigenous varieties Xarel•lo, Xarel•lo Rojo and Garnacha Blanca.
The winery also has another estate they bought recently where they plant Pinot Noir, Syrah, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon.


For a few years now Loxarel has been using organic and biodynamic farming techniques, an example of the great deal of respect this winery has for the terroir and the vines. For example, instead of using pesticides, a herd of goats are in charge of keeping the weeds at bay in the vineyard.


The innovative spirit of Josep Mitjans is very present at Bodega Loxarel. Proof of this is the elaboration of Xarel•lo Loxarel, which is fermented in big clay amphoras. Or 109, a sparkling wine which is put on sale with its fine lees and without being disgorged, after 109 months of ageing.


WINES AND SPARKLING WINES BY BODEGA LOXAREL
Bodega Loxarel make both still and sparkling wines.
In their collection of still wines, Loxarel Cora must be pointed out, a fruity but dry white wine. Very well balanced.
Loxarel Ops, a red wine macerated in underground vats for 22 days.
Loxarel Eos Syrah, a Syrah single-varietal from vines grown using organic and biodynamic growing techniques.
Loxarel 790. 790 is the number of days between the harvest and the day the wine is bottled. A long wait worthwhile.


As for sparkling wines, we have to mention Loxarel Vintage Reserva Brut Nature. An organic sparkling wine aged for 28-30 months.
Loxarel Refugi Reserva Brut Nature, a sparkling wine from old vines which is aged for between 27 and 30 months.
Loxarel 109 is their prize wine. An excellent sparkling wine which is aged for 109 months and goes on to the market still on its lees and without being disgorged.
