- Vineyard: Vins Petxina supports the environment and promotes the creation of organic wines and the transformation of conventional to organic vineyards. They are wines of little-known style, area or variety, each having their own unique personality. All the grapes come from the vines owned by the winery CELLER 9+, located around the Mediterranean village La Nou de Gaià, 5km far from the sea, close to Tarragona. The vines are old and the viticulture is based on the traditional techniques (following the lunar calendar), always putting quality first. "The vines are small and different. Some face the sea, others don’t. The soil is different from one row to another in the vineyard, but overall they are poor soils. We prune in green to reduce production and get more concentration and better maturity of the grapes. The area has a strong effect from the “marinada” (Mediterranean wind), cooling down the temperature and preventing it to rise over 31-32 ºC on the hottest days of the summer. "
- Vinification: This wine is made only with grapes. No added sulfites, spontaneous fermentation and a light filtering using paper. The wine ferments at low temperatures and stays with the lees for several months before bottling.
