The D.O. Catalunya is a fairly young designation of origin that was created in 1999 to give wineries more flexibility in their wine making methods, yet respecting the origin’s philosophy and high-quality standards. It covers all the traditional grape planting areas on top of the existing Catalan D.O.’s. The D.O. Catalunya thus offers its certification to wineries with high quality wines that are located outside the more traditional D.O. areas or that want to maintain their own identity.
More specifically, the Més Que Paraules winery is located in the Bages region, in the province of Barcelona (Catalonia). It is a privileged region, situated in the middle of mountainous regions such as Montserrat and the Sierra de Castelltallat, the Parque Natural de Sant Llorenç del Munt and the mountain massif of Montcau. The Mediterranean continental climate brings little precipitation and a strong thermic fluctuation. Within the pine and (holm) oak forests that surround the vineyards, we find aromatic plants such as lavender, thyme and rosemary. The terroir (mostly clay and marl soils) provide the wines of their typical balsamic notes.
