Alvaro Gonzalez Marcos

Spain · Cataluña · Penedes

Alvaro Gonzales Marcos is working 6 hectares of vines in the Penedes area near Barcelona. He has calcareous soils, which are very alkaline and fertile. The climate is Mediterranean, with rains in spring and autumn and warm summers with little rainfall.

He practice certified organic farming, without herbicides, insecticides, or chemical fertilizers that kill the microbiological richness of the soil and adulterate the authentic taste of the grape. He lets the grass grow between the vines to promote biodiversity, prevent erosion, and reduce CO2 emissions that occur when plowing. He use biodynamic practices to promote the natural fertility of the soil and the relationship of plants with their environment. He avoids monoculture by working small plots, respecting the natural vegetation that exists on their boundaries and preserving plantations of fruit trees and centuries-old olive trees, true refuges of biodiversity.

He picks ripe and healthy grapes, uses spontaneous fermentation with native yeast, there is no filtering, and no sulfur added.

The grapes are all local varitals - malvasia sitges, xarel.lo, parellada & ull de llebre.
