Characteristics of Principia Mathematica
Principia Mathematica is a white wine produced in Penedès by Alemany i Corrio in Villafranca del Penedès, Barcelona. Irene Alemany and Laurent Corrio met in Burgundy while they were studying oenology. Their passion for this world inspired them to create Penedès´ first garage winery in 1999.
The vineyard´s only plot is situated in Sant Pere de Molanta (Alt Penedés) and it is planted with the 30 year old Xarel·lo variety.
Principia Mathematica is made with direct pressing, and it ferments in 228 and 700 litre new French oak barrels. Two thirds of the wine is grown in these barrels and the rest in stainless steel tanks.
Principia Mathematica is a creamy and full-bodied Xarel·lo with good acidity.

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.
Sot Lefriec is the name of the first wine a couple of enthusiastic young winemakers, and Laurent Irene Alemany Penedès in Corrie. Irene is from Penedès, Laurent is french (Lefriec was the name of his grandmother). Both studied oenology in Bourgogne, after which it took to produce a small quantity of wine from a small vineyard.
