Characteristics of Loxarel Ops

Loxarel Ops is a wine from IO Penedès produced by the Loxarel winery. This is a wine blend which consists of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Tempranillo, which is rare in this region.

The winery includes Loxarel grapes from vineyards that are in the Alt Penedès, about 300 metres in altitude. For the preparation, a biological and biodynamic farming method is followed. Every four years, manure is used as a fertilizer.

Grapes are destemmed and undergo a process of maceration for 22 days in underground boxes. The tempranillo is aged for a period of six months in French oak barrels from Limousin. Can Mayol's farm, where the winery is, is also where the Mitjans family have spent five generations working to produce excellent wines. The hectares where vines are grown today were an airfield during the Civil War.

Loxarel plays with the name of one of the most typical varieties of the area, the Xarelo. The Mitjans family has known how to work this rich land for many years, making historic wines.

Designation of Origin D.O. Penedès

Winery Loxarel

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.

Imágenes y situación D.O. Penedès

Loxarel is based on the personality and character of its creator, Josep Mitjans, and on its organic, natural, biodynamic wines. The connection with the land, and the relationship with the terroir with everything surrounding it, with the universe, characterises wines that reflect the landscape and take the palate to the most authentic Penedès: sparkling wines with personality and character, and natural wines with essence, that reconnect with the land and the spark of life it carries.
