Quality Control

The DO Penedès seal on a bottle is the guarantee of quality control and the authenticity of a Penedès wine. Raise a glass, enjoy them and share them. Cheers! 


The Regulating Council of the DO Penedès controls the entire winemaking process, from the vineyard to the glass, in other words, its traceability. 

Using a soil map, the characteristics of every plot planted to vine are known and the Regulating Council keeps a register of growers with the details of every producer. During the harvest production, vineyard yields and the quantity of grapes assigned for producing classified wines is all controlled. 


To this end, all samples are subject to sensory analysis by the tasting committee. Only those samples that exceed the required limits are classified and receive the seal of guarantee that every bottle of DO Penedès wine carries.
