History.

The history of DG VITICULTORS, S.L. is intimately intertwined with the history of the land and people of Mas Fonoll and Sapera in the wine country of Alt Penedes. The story began in 1991 when Jaime Doménech Trinchant, who believed in the prospects of growing grapevines on a hard land of extreme climate, endeavoured to plant the first vinyards. His son, Santiago Domenech Garay, gave continuity to this endeavour by devoting time to transform this land into a vinyard of extraordinary appeal. Nowadays, Pedro Domènech and Antonio García, shouldered by their family and the effort of their whole team, are the ones who are further developing this beautiful landscape and producing highly appreciated wines.

 

Vineyards.

The vineyards of Mas Fonoll and Mas Sapera are located within the area of Pontons, a small village in the Alt Panades, in the province of Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. Mas Fonoll and Mas Sapera are two mountain properties at heights between 2.130 and 2.800 feet above sea level.

The area of Sapera extends alongside a small valley at the foot of the cliff upon which Mas Fonoll lies. Together they make up some 54ha of vineyard in a total property of over 200 ha. Of the 54ha Sapera occupies 14ha, and Mas Fonoll 40ha.

Grape varieties: Mas Fonoll (mass- foo-noy): Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon blanc, Albariño, Incroccio Manzoni and Gewürztraminer. Sapera (sah-peh-rah) : Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Albariño and Loureiro.

Characteristics of the soil: It is all of loam-clay structure, each different lot with varying proportions of stone or gravel. As a whole the soil is poor and shallow and abundant in clay.

Climate: Cold which delays the germination of the plants and favors late maturity.
