Vinification: Gentle pressing to obtain the grape juice. First fermentation at 14ºc for 15 days in stainless steel tanks. Second fermentation in bottle, and at least 12 months of maturing on racks.
The Bolet family has cultivated vinyards and elaborated wine for over seven generations.At the beginning of the 20th century, Jaume Bolet Galofré faced the phylloxera plague by replanting all of the vines on our property with white and red varieties typical of the region. Over the years he planted new vines and today we work 66 acres. The estates: Can Planes d’en Perull, Les Conilleres and Mas Lluet, each in different areas and at different altitudes, are located in Castellví de la Marca (Barcelona). In the 1970s, Antoni Bolet Pascual began to modernize the winery by installing machinery and stainless steel tanks. In 1982 we began bottling wines and cavas from our homegrown harvest under the Bolet brand, tribute to the family surname, from both branches "Mas Lluet" and “Can Planes”.
We are located in the center of the Penedès region. The vineyards are located on the Mas Lluet, Can Planes d’en Perull and Les Conilleres estates, all in Castellví de la Marca and at different altitudes in different areas of the municipality. Our 66 hectares of vineyards are grown by organic farming system, controlled by CCPAE (Catalan Council of Organic Agricultural Production) the official organism for organic farming production in Catalonia. From the selection of our finest vineyards, we obtain the first pressing of the grape. Our exquisite wines and cavas are made from this raw material, result of the work carried out during the year, with the dedication and tenderness of the whole family.
