Characteristics of Sentits Blancs
Sentits Blancs is an organic white wine from the D.O. Catalunya produced by the Puiggròs winery. This wine is made exclusively with the Garnacha Blanca variety.
The grapes used to produce Sentits Blancs come from vines over 50 years old. The vineyards are situated in Ódena, in the comarca of Anoia, growing at altitudes between 450 and 650 metres and are home to calcareous-clay soils. Once the grapes are at the optimum point of maturation, the harvest is carried out manually, avoiding any damage of breakage that could affect the quality of the fruit.
Once the grapes for Sentits Blancs are transported to the winery, alcoholic fermentation is carried out in barrels, which helps provide the character that defines this wine. Once the various phases of the winemaking process have been carried out, the wine is aged on its lees for 5 months in new French oak barrels. Sentits Blancs is then bottled without being filtered, therefore it is not unlikely to find impurities in the final product. 1,440 bottles of Sentits Blancs are produced per year.
The Puiggròs winery produces wines using only grapes from their organically cultivated vineyards. The winery produces 8,000 bottles per year, a third of which are exported to outside of Spain.

For many Catalan winemakers, the DO Catalunya is one of their best weapons for marketing their wines to the international market, since the image of their wine is significantly enhanced by a ‘Denominación de Origen’, which can certify a wines origin and quality. One of the initial positive effects is the fact that great wines are associated with a larger geographic area within the peninsula, in the same way as the Bordeaux region in France. For many producers, the DO Catalunya is a clear sign of the regions commitment towards a model of quality. This is especially beneficial for Catalan wines that previously did not come under another ‘Denominación de Origen’.
