Producer Profile

In the little town of Vilafranca del Penedès in Cataluña, Irene and Laurent are challenging the traditional perception of DO Penedès wine. They have committed themselves to an organic approach. Converting their vineyards, abandoning all forms of chemical treatment and fertilisers and shunning the typical Penedès high yields. In their modest cellar, which was in part homemade production remains small yet as they identify further small vineyard sites their range has extended to include distinctive wines of richness and complexity using naturally fermented Xarel-lo.


The vines for the Cargol Treu Vi are trained Gobelet and are over 70 years old. Planted on chalky soils, production is small at less than 2000 kg / Ha. Irene and Laurent manage their vineyards lutte raisonnée with the utmost respect for the surrounding land.


Vinification is carried out in 300 litre French oak barrels, 25% of which is in new oak barrels and fermented with wild yeast.

Tasting Note

Lovely aromas of white flowers, white fruit, citrus, hints of smoke and elegant mineral undertones. On the palate, notes of apples, pears, smoke, dry flowers and vanilla combine with some salty touches and mineral remembrances. Long, salty finish.
