Can Macià is located in the privileged surroundings of the Anoia river basin in Òdena (Barcelona), with more than 35 hectares of flat land and a Continental-Mediterranean climate. For more than eight centuries the family has cultivated its vines under the influence of the Anoia river, respecting the soil and seeking a way to express themselves through the best adapted grape varieties.
With a clayey calcareous soil, similar to the area of Bages, with high temperature variations between day and night and very low rainfall, the estate in Òdena gives a very low yield production with high acidity and slow but complete ripening that make this land an ideal area for obtaining high quality cava base wines.
The Can Macià estate, includes the estate of Can BatlleVell, also belonging to the Bohigas family, with 54 hectares of vineyard and more than 50 years of history.
Can BatlleVell is located in Gelida (Barcelona), in a high quality area for the production of still wines and highly adaptable red varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. A soil with a high lime content, in conjunction with the Mediterranean climate and early ripening, gives the wines a sensation of structure and gentleness on the palate.
The two estates have native varieties of Macabeu, Xarel·lo and Parellada (some vines being more than 50 years old), as well as more modern Mediterranean varieties of more recent plantation, such as Grenache Blanc or Tempranillo. There are even some foreign varieties that better adapt to our soil: the Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet vineyard which is more than 40 years old.
The different qualitative development of the grapes on the two estates enables selecting the best grape varieties and qualities for each type of product.
