Right in the heart of the Garraf Massif lies the town of Olérdola, in the Lower Penedès. The winery Finca Viladellops is located there, deeply rooted in the locality and committed to sustainable organic farming. Owner Marcelo Desvalls was one of the first to promote the Xarel·lo variety in the production of still white wines after Carles Esteva.

The large amount of sediments and marine fossils found in this land are clea...
