Winemaker's Notes:

DIBON CELLARS is a family business with a long wine growing tradition. Now, three generations work together, counting on the support of the firm's hard workers who contribute to the elaboration and maturing of wines and cavas.

The cellars are in Vilafranca del Penedès, where all the elaboration, storage, maturation and bottling of our products take place; in the same location our ancestors' vineyards can be found, and others of the same quality that we have been incorporating. The vineyard is in the process of becoming 100% Organic by 2009, and consists of 75 hectares of trellised vines 1000 feet above the Mediterranean Sea.

About Bodegas Pinord :

In 1942, José María Tetas set up the current winery in Vilafranca del Penedès, just four kilometres from the original estate. Having inherited the family methods and traditions, it has gradually grown until it has now become one of the most highly reputed wineries in the region and the whole country. At the present time, PINORD’s production facilities have an output capacity of over five million bottles per year. Nevertheless, traditional family standards are maintained and care is taken to avoid over production, something that generally results in a loss of quality. Two enologists and a laboratory with the most up-to-date analytical and quality control equipment ensure that the long-standing family tradition continues to be compatible with today’s most demanding quality, production and health controls, demonstrating that traditional methods are not necessarily at variance with the implementation of the most rigorous standards. The early wines soon began to win a name and prestige for themselves as a result of their high quality. Since then, generation after generation, year after year, the family’s vineyards have continued to expand, the local varieties have considerably improved and the family name has become inseparably linked to the wine of El Penedès. The Bodegas Pinord vineyards are situated just a few miles from Vilafranca. We are proud to be able to say that they are grouped round the Muntanyans Hermitage standing on a hill from which you can see a large part of El Penedès.
