Gramona

Description and History

The history of Gramona wines goes all the way back to the second half of the 19th century. On the one hand, there was Josep Gramona: owner of several bars in Barcelona as well as wine storage cellars, founder of the newspaper "La Vit Catalana" and president of the Gremi de Tavernes de Barcelona (the city's bar association). On the other hand, there was the Batlle family with their long winegrowing tradition, who worked in the wine trade and as farmers on the Finca La Plana estate in Sant Sadurní.

In 1881, driven by the demand for wine on the French market (hit hard by the phylloxera outbreak at the time), the family built the first Batlle winery and became owners of Finca La Plana, an estate that the family has run ever since.

Marriage brought the Gramona and Batlle families together when Bartolomé wed Pilar in 1913, marking the beginning of a family saga built upon celebrated wines and cavas (sparkling wines) that the fifth generation continues to this day.

Varieties and Production

Gramona owns 48 hectares of vines, mostly Xarel·lo (including the red variety) and Macabeu, along with about ten other varieties used in making their unmistakable wines and Gran Reserva cavas.

The winery is completely sustainable and environmentally friendly. Thus, its single vineyard wines and terroir wines, as well as all still, sparkling and sweet wines are made according to organic farming – and in some cases biodynamic – principles. The winery even owns its own farm.

The wines that form part of Qalidès come from the following terroirs: Mas Escorpí Pinot Noir, Mas Escorpí Chardonnay, Mas Escorpí Gewürztraminer, La Plana, Font de Jui, La Solana, El Serralet

Wine Characteristics

All of the wines are made according to organic and – in some cases – biodynamic viticultural principles. The winemaking process involves the use of a sorting table, gravity flow, vinification in oak barrels, egg-shaped tanks, amphorae or vats, always striving to preserve the truest expression of the land.
