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.
