Brut Nature Reserva, aged for a minimum of 20 months, which comes from a vineyard planted in 1965 of the Subirat Parent variety, perfectly adapted to the territory located in Vilafranca del Penedès, Cal Salinas neighborhood. Vineyard with a slight slope, facing northeast, about 200 meters above sea level. Very poor terrain with abundant small gravel and clay. Worked with little impact from the tractor to try not to compact the ground. Viticulture without using herbicides or systemic phytosanitary products, or chemical synthesis fertilizers, in transition to organic viticulture.
