Penedes is situated to the Southwest of Barcelona and is the largest and most important wine producing region of Catalonia. Penedes can accommodate a wide variety of grapes and the wine makers of the region are not shy about experimenting, which takes place on a large scale. Due in part to this fact, Penedes wines are quickly gaining a popular reputation. The white wines and rosados have dramatically increased in quality with the application of modern techniques. However, the most famous Penedes product is still Cava (a sparkling wine).
