VinyaGeographical situation


A special feature of this D.O is that it protects grape cultures inside the Autonomous Community. It is more a political division than a geographical one, which allows a D.O guarantee seal for those Catalan productions that are not covered by any other existant designation of origin.




CellerClimate and soil


The climate is Mediterranean. Soil shows all the varieties in the Autonomous Community, so the characteristics are not the same for all the products that this D.O makes.
