Freixenet’s vineyards are planted to take advantage of the full range of terroir and climate in the Penedès region of Catalonia, the area where most of Spain’s cavas are made. From the dry, cool mountains of the north, to the humid and warm coastal areas to the south, the vineyards bear the fruit of many varieties of Vitis vinifera. In addition to cultivating
its own expansive vineyards, Freixenet also maintains exclusive relationships with vine growers throughout the region.
Freixenet wines reflect the excellent chalky soils and prime growing conditions that
shape the character of each bottle.
Freixenet winemaker Josep Bujan gives his all to the wines, blending technology, tradition and a deep understanding of the Penedès terroir. One of Spain’s premier enologists,
Josep is active and connected in the international wine industry, and mentors a number of young winemakers. His work draws from deep winemaking heritage reaching back to the original yeast strains developed
by Dolores Ferrer, many of which are still in use today.
Our cavas have benefited from his knowledge for more than three decades, making Josep an integral part of the Freixenet family and the success of Freixenet wines. His commitment to quality and consistency has enabled
Freixenet to become the world’s leading cava producer.
