Macabeo and Parellada: Pressing is carried out without any application of pressure. The juice is transferred to stainless steel tanks and fermented. Each variety is fermented separately. Pinot Noir: The free-run juice is mixed in with the pressed juice, and the must is transferred to stainless steel tanks. Fermentation of all varieties takes place at 16-18°C.
Based in Catalonia, northeast Spain, and founded in the 19th century, Freixenet remains a family business. With winery estates worldwide, Freixenet has grown to become one of the world's leading producers of both still and sparkling wine. Penedès in Catalonia is the largest and most important sparkling wine region. It is split into 3 zones ranging in altitude from 250m to 800m above sea level, each with a distinct climate.
