The cava of Codorníu was born in the vineyards of the property. From many years ago, in Codorníu we apply them the techniques of viticulture sustainable, namely, we let nature take its course and only intervene when there are mismatches. Each grape variety is different and requires a climate and a soil special.
Codorníu is the only producer of champagne which uses grapes from vineyards of three climatic zones are very different within the D. O. Quarry. It is a trait of exceptional that allows us to plant each variety in the area where it is able to display all of its expressiveness and, at the same time, provides Codorníu as a potential unmatched to be able to create different styles and types of champagne.
These three climatic zones are:
• The Penedès, soil type clayey-calcareous and mediterranean climate, where the grapes of traditional varieties, Macabeu, Xarel·lo and Parellada expressing all of your unique and original.
• Conca de Barberà, a zone with moderate continental climate ideal for the cultivation of the Pinot Noir variety, from which we get grapes with a mineral touch thanks to the slate floors.
• Costers del Segre, the most continental of the Catalonia interior, where the great thermal amplitude between day and night produces grapes with a high aromatic concentration and flavors, and a vibrant freshness ideal for the varieties Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
