Characteristics of Desig
Desig is a white wine from the Penedès, produced by the Mas Candí winery.
Desig is a varietal Xarel.lo. The grapes come from a single vineyard planted 48 years ago in Las Gunyoles Avinyonet (Barcelona).
The vines are grown organically and biodynamically, no chemicals or pesticides are used, the vines thrive on decaying plant debris.
The development of Desig begins with a manual harvest in boxes of 15kg. Once in the winery, the must makes a cold maceration. After fermentation, the wine is aged for seven months on its lees, performing "battonages" regularly.
Before bottling, it is neither filtered nor clarified.

Today, the D.O Penedès is experimenting with viticulture and winemaking like no other region in Spain, home to a vast range of different grape varieties. The region is home to traditional white and red varieties, foreign ones, noble ones, permitted grapes, experimental grapes, and those that demostrate intrinsic qualities. As well as the grapes, the production techniques used are also worth noting, the location of the vineyards, the yields per hectare, the wines produced using traditional, original or even exclusive blends, the different ageing times, as well as the complexity of the different barrels used! But the reality is, given the vast diversity, it can be difficult to pinpoint what really defines a wine from Penedès, since there are so many types of wines and wineries in the region. However, the common denominator of all the wines from Penedès continues to be balance and quality.
Newly established winery located in the Penedes Gunyoles born to combine the strength of four growers, winemakers and friends to give birth to their own wines, grapes obtained from vineyards that were already working their grandparents. Looking complicity with the landscape, eliminating the use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers, as well as the process in both the vinya and in the cellar is done in a manual. Work landraces and varieties have been recovered as the typical Catalan Torbat send or Roigenc.
