D.O. Conca de Barberà (wine region)
The wine labels are certified by the name of the Region D.O. Conca de Barberà.
Calcareous soils, poor in organic matter, combined with an average altitude of the area between 300 to 600 meters, impregnate wines with a fresh and light character, with a great aromatic expression at the same time.
The local variety of the Conca de Barbera is the Trepat: a long, large grape that produces fresh, fruity, low-alcohol wines, specially valued on the production of pink champagne.
