About the Producer

Masia Can Mayol

Loxarel (Xarel-lo, their principal grape varietal re-arranged) is the brand name of the 4th generation family owned estate which, under the vision of Josep Mitjans, converted to organic production in 2002 then biodynamic in 2005.

The 50ha of vineyards, located high in the mountains (and including the highest is DO Penedes) are structured around environmentally friendly production not simply organic cultivation. For example, Loxarel carry out green pruning with a flock of 250 sheep and goats which eat the vine leaves without touching the fruit as, before they mature, the grapes are too astringent and unpalatable.

Biodynamic agriculture guarantees respect for the environment, the diversity of the surroundings and includes a spiritual dimension in the relation between man and earth and earth and the universe; it involves a harmony with the universal forces to conserve fertility and the nutritive qualities of the grape grown on Masia Can Mayol’s estate in order to guarantee the best wines, sparkling wines and natural wines.
