ABOUT: Can Descregut is a traditional Catalan farm house located in the Penedès county, a Mediterranean wine region one hour ahead from Barcelona.
The winery is managed by a young couple (Marc and Arantxa) who after several years growing grapes and making bulk base wine for the cava producers, in 2005 decided take a step further in the elaboration of organic wine.
We cultivate the traditional Catalan grape varieties as Xarel•lo, Xarel•lo Vermell, Macabeu, Sumoll and Parellada but also the French Merlot. They come from our 4 estates, situated around the winery and in the hills of Penedès. The altitude varies from 200 to 500 m and offers a diverse mixture of soils and microclimates.
In 2005 we were the first winery to produce wines with the scarce variety xarel.lo vermell (red xarel.lo). Since then we have acquired a great experience in working with this variety.
We work in organic farming methods without herbicides and insecticides, always seeking the natural balance of the vine. Can Descregut wines and cavas are ecological and biodynamic; they breathe the countryside and enfold the essence of everything that surrounds the vineyards. The winery is certified as organic by the UE.
Our production is a 50% of wines and a 50% of cavas Reserve and Gran Reserve.
