Characteristics of Viladellops Garnatxa
Viladellops Garnatxais a red wine produced by the winery Finca Viladellops, in Olèrdola, D.O. Penedès.
Finca Viladellops is a winery located in the Macizo del Garraf, a 15 km mountain range situated along the Mediterranean coast. This mountain range is known for its calcareous soils and the presence of marine fossils.
In these special surroundings, we can find this 500 hectare farm, with Mediterranean woodlands, cereal and 60 hectares of vineyards that are registered in the D.O. Penedès. This is where Marcelo Desvalls, its owner, prepares 100% Mediterranean quality wines. These wines intend to transmit their character through local varieties and certified organic agriculture for all of them.
Viladellops Garnatxais a wine made from Red Grenache. This variety comes from two young vineyards which were planted in 1989 and 2007 on calcareous soils. Harvesting is carried out manually, selecting the grapes in the vineyard and in the winery. They are manually harvested and placed in 15kg boxes. Pre-fermentation maceration at a temperature of 10-12ºC. Fermentation carried out in stainless steel deposits at a controlled temperature that ranges between 20 and 24ºC. Each grape farm's harvest is fermented individually. Wine is clarified and stabilised before it is bottled.
Viladellops Garnatxais an intense, fresh, fruity wine. A wine that clearly shows the potential of this grape variety, in surroundings that are beyond compare: the mountain range Macizo del Garraf.

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.
