El Microscopi is a red wine produced by Celler Alemany i Corrio in Vilafranca del Penedés (Barcelona), D.O. Penedés.

 

Celler Alemany i Corrio is the personal project of Irene Alemany and Laurent Corrio, life and business partners that met in Burgundy while they studied oenology.

Celler Alemany i Corrio was born in 1999 and it was the first "garage winery" in Penedés. We can find their vineyards in Lavern (Penedés), located on a slight slope, with several varieties of grapes that are between 25 and 60 years old.

In the production of their wines they try to keep the process as natural as possible, seeking to reflect the expression of the varieties and the character of the terroir to the maximum extent.

 

El Microscopi is a wine made from Merlot, Carignan and Cabernet Sauvignon from vineyards cultivated in a sustainable way.

They are manually harvested and placed in small boxes. The grapes are selected in the vineyards. Once they arrive at the winery, the grapes are destemmed and macerated before they ferment, with native yeasts, in stainless steel deposits. It partly ages in used oak barrels. Racking and bottling are carried out following the moon cycle.

 

El Microscopi is a fruity, honest and direct wine. An easy to drink wine that stands out for its aromas of ripe black fruit. This wine was created with the aim of raising funds to purchase a microscope for the Oncology Institute of the Hospital Universitari Vall d'Hebrón, in Barcelona. The project is carried out every year.

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.
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.
