Bodegas Pinord has over a hundred years of winemaking experience in the Penedès region of north-eastern Spain. The property doubles as a natural reserve dedicated to the protection of wildlife. Near the family country house, Masia Dibon, is a very ancient and large tree from which the name Pinord is derived, or Pi del Nord (“Pine from the North”). The Tetas children over the years plant their favorite trees on the property.
Combining traditional methods inherited from their ancestors and state-of-the-art technology, the Tetas family produces wines and cavas that are recognized for their quality. They own 60 hectares of vineyards in Penedès, and also buy grapes from their cousins. During the last few years, they started to make wines in other appellations of Spain.
Farming/vinification practices: organic, with some parcels farmed in biodynamy. The wines are vegan.
Cava is classified into six different categories, according to the amount of sugar it contains:
Extra-brut: less than 3 grams of sugar per pint.
Brut: up to 7 grams of sugar per pint.
Extra-seco: between 6 and 10 grams of sugar per pint.
Seco: between 8 and 35 grams of sugar per pint.
