Amazing as it may seem, the Bohigas family has been growing grapes in this area of Catalonia Spain since 1290. Located in the Anoia river valley near the city of Odena, the vineyards are at higher altitudes with cooler climates than other producers of cava wines (Spanish sparking wine) in the Penedes region. Soils are clay and limestone. Dominating the white varieties grown here is the grape Xarel-lo, which has anti-oxidant properties similar to those in red grapes. This enables extended lees aging - 24 months in this case - without oxidative problems. Wines are disgorged with minimal (6 grams/liter) dosage.

Bohigas vineyards are farmed organically, and are in the process of full organic conversion. The focus is always on traditional grapes:  Xarel-lo, Parellada, and Macabeo (Viura) for white, and Trepat for reds. Their handling of the Xarel-lo vineyards is a source of their fame. The wine is 50% Xarello, 30% Macabeo, 20% Parellada.
