The grapes used to produce Anna de Codorniu are sourced from two very different growing areas. The Chardonnay varietal comes from our vineyards located in the region with the most continental climate in the D.O. Cava, in Lleida, which gives the grapes optimum concentration, lower acidity , and fuller body and intensity . Our cultivation systems follow integrated production criteria and are especially adapted to producing sparkling wines. Harvest takes place around the middle of August and is always carried out at night, to keep the grapes as cool as possible, to retain aroma and avoid oxidation or spontaneous fermentation. The Xarel·lo, Macabeo and Parellada varietals come from vineyards selected by our viticulture and oenology teams in the Penedès area, where these varietals express their authentic character: good level of acidity , freshness and citric and floral aromas.
