Grower Website Huguet de Can Feixes Region: Spain - Cataluña

The historic Can Feixes estate is situated on gravely slopes above the 400- meter level in an amphitheater at the tree line near the famous Montserrat pinnacle, which forms Penedès northern boundary. The farthest Penedès vineyard from the Mediterranean, temperature variation here is more Continental in its extremes, the drier climate more conducive to grape health. The altitude and mountain terrain constitute the tiny viticultural home of the Parellada variety, locally known as Montonec (“grape of the mountain”). Recognized as the region’s Grand Cru, Can Feixes sells the majority of its grapes and a large portion of the fermented wines as well. Only the best grapes, and subsequently the best wines, are kept for production under the family label.
