An exceptional region


In Catalonia, between 85% and 90% of the land is basic character of limestone. Only 10% of the territory is acidic. Maresme in its entirety is acidic type granite, and this makes it a place in our country geologically outstanding. The acid character makes some plant species that can live in places and not others. Examples are some very interesting tree species such as pine, cork oak, cherry and chestnut. All of them allow forestry species and therefore, good management of our forests. In Arenys de Munt and by extension the Maresme are all these species. If you look, many of them are linked to the vineyard: the cork stoppers and we make the chestnut stakes and barrels. Cherry also could make barrels for aging our wines. If the ground vegetation conditions inevitably vines grow on this land will sour unique organoleptic characteristics. Maresme. The bedrock is granite. This erosion as altering the physical and chemical, weakens and eventually forms the sand becomes thick sand beaches that fill Maresmenques. The minerals that make up the granite are mica, quartz and feldspar. To effect the water feldspar (originally white as quartz) is weakened and takes a tonalites brown and pink-granite rock (eye steel) loses its consistency. This sand along with a few clays are born our vines and roots grow rapidly towards the bottom because the sand is very sandy and the water quickly percolates down.



The coastal mountain range overlooking the Maresme an exceptional character as completely parallel to the sea at a distance of only two to four kilometers, this mountain range in the section Maresme (Conrreria, San Mateo, Corredor montnegre) separates the rivers Besòs and Tordera end but in between the sea and endless streams rials. This is because the range together with his spurs and due to the proximity to the sea generates tens of micro-valleys with small basins fail to converge and so we find that every two hundred, three hundred or four hundred meters have an outlet to the sea. All this creates a different set of interconnected ecosystems (forest, bushes, garden, dry, rial, urban, dunes, marine) and therefore a very high potential in biodiversity. Historically, in the seaside or flat stretches over streams and rials, areas rich in organic matter and therefore more fertile is where we planted vegetables and the highest part dry. Our vineyards are established in the foothills of the coastal mountains about two hundred meters facing the sea and this allows them to be aired to the four winds. This factor is very interesting to prevent diseases in the vineyard and to make agriculture more sustainable as possible avoiding the use of products harmful to the health of ecosystems and people.
