Characteristics of Jean Leon Vinya Gigi
Vinya Gigi is a white wine from the Penedès prepared by Jean Leon. This wine is a varietal Chardonnay.
Vinya Gigi comes from grapes from a vineyard named Gigi, in honour of the daughter of the founder of the winery, Jean Leon.
Vinya Gigi undergoes a period of fermentation and is then aged for about half a year in French oak barrels with its lees.
Vinya Gigi finally remains in the bottle for at least six months before being marketed. The Jean Leon winery was founded in 1964 and takes its name from its founder. He began in New York working as a taxi driver and, years later, ended up being the owner of a successful restaurant in Hollywood.

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.
The Jean Leon winery was designed and built in 1964, Chateau de Bordeaux style. It stands at the midpoint of the payment in one of the highest points of the same and is surrounded by vineyards themselves. The philosophy of the winery has always been oriented to quality, elegance and into limited production so as to maintain personal control of all its wines throughout the process. That is why despite the technical advances incorporated the cellar, yet many of the works are conducted in an absolutely traditional manual, ensuring a perfect follow up work.
