Saniger Extra RVA
Bodegas Masia Can Mayol based in Penedes make an extensive range of Cavas under the Loxarel and Saniger labels. The Xarel-lo grapes used in their Cavas come from 70 year old vineyards. The bottles are aged in caves that were used as shelters by the civilian population during the Spanish Civil War.
Loxarel’s 50 ha of vineyards, located high in the mountains, are structured around environmentally friendly production not just organic cultivation - for example a decreasing use of tractors and mechanisation, whilst letting goats and sheep graze in the vineyards in preference to weeding. The vines have a minimal treatment of organic fertiliser once every three to four years with a determination to not over work the soil. Thus production is of high quality, low yields and an utmost respect for the land.
