Pla de Bages

pla-de-bagesPla de Bages is one of the smallest DOs in Catalonia, covering only 600 hectares. It is also one of the newest having acquired its official status in 1995.

The vineyards are mainly located in the valleys of the Llobregat River and its tributaries. There are two different types of soil in two well-defined topographies: a central basin with clay and marl soils at an altitude of 200 m above sea level; and a peripheral area where marl and lime bearing soils with a high carbonate content abound, at an altitude of 500 m above sea level.
