Why we love this wine
At the end of September, beginning of autumn, when it starts to get dark earlier in the afternoon, the Xarel.lo for this wine is harvested at the last daylight in the organic vineyard of "La Higuera" - the fig tree , the dark hour; la hora fosca. The vineyard “La Higuera ” of Can Descregut is also a representation of the identity of the landscapes of the past, where it was customary for the vines to stand side by side with a fig tree in the center, which provided the shade needed for farmers and animals that worked on the land.
