Characteristics of Xarel·lo d'AT Roca
Xarel.lo d’AT Roca is a white wine from the D.O Penedès region produced by the AT Roca winery. This wine is made using only Xarel.lo grapes.
The grapes used to make Xarel.lo d’AT Roca come from Casa Llarga, one of the estates that works with the winery. The vineyard is located at 430 metres above sea level in the town of Ordal, which is located in the Garraf. The vines grow on calcerous soils and the agriculture techniques used are carried out in an organic and ecological manner.
After being transported to the winery, the grapes undergo the vinification process in two different types on container: french oak barrels with a 500 litre capacity, and clay jugs. Following this, and in the same container from where the must has been obtained, Xarel.lo d’AT Roca is aged for four months on its lees.
Finally, the wine is blended. Only 3,000 bottles of Xarel.lo d’AT Roca is produced every vintage.
The AT Roca winery is a project by Agustí Torelló Sibill, who for years worked that family company Agustí Torelló Mata. With this adventure, Agustí Torelló Sibill is acompanied by his son Agustí Torelló Roca, a young winemaker with a great future ahead of him.

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.
