Characteristics of Finca Viladellops
Finca Viladellops is a red wine from Penedès, and more specifically, the Massís de Garraf, an area with calcareous soils and marine fossil remains. This wine is made from vines over 15 years old, harvested manually. The grapes go through a double selection (in the vineyard and at the winery). They go through a pre-fermentation maceration in deposits at 10-12º. The grapes ferment separately in deposits at a controlled temperature (23-27º). The wine ages for 12 months in French oak barrels. Only the best barrels are used. It then continues ageing in deposits until being bottled.

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.
