About Gramona Penedès Gessamí Blanco

Gramona Penedès Gessamí Blanco shows aromatic intensity reminiscent of a walk in the springtime. It evokes the cool, fresh air, a bunch of white flowers, jasmine, orange blossom, and rose. Aromas of anise and chamomile tea. Newly cut grass. Table grape, pineapple, peach, and a citric breeze. Pleasant on entry, light-bodied, and silky on the palate. Fantastic acidity that gives a great freshness to the wine. Gessamí obtains the balance of its fruity and floral character in such that it shifts between the delicate softness of unctuous structure and a cheerful and refreshing spirit.

About Gramona

In 1850, Josep Batlle was working as a winemaker and grower for a family who owned the vineyards in La Plana, in the Anoia River valley. When phylloxera was ravaging the vineyards of France and much of Europe, Josep Batlle’s son, Pau, set about selling wine to the French sparkling wine producers, who knew the Catalonia region well, as it was their main cork supplier at the time. Using the Xarel·lo as a base, Pau learned how to refine his own wines for this purpose. This led to him setting up his own winery, Celler Batlle, in 1881, and enabled him to buy the vineyards where his father used to work.

The next generation, Pau’s daughter, Pilar, married Bartolomé Gramona, the son of Josep Gramona, the then president of the Barcelona Taverners Guild, and founder of La Vid Catalana newspaper of the Catalan Association of Wine Producers, and from San Sadurní. This united two old wine families who started producing sparkling wine, already under the Gramona brand name, in the early 20th century.

1945 was the start of a new era for Gramona, under the stewardship of Bartomeu y Josep Lluis, the ‘hard working’ generation. They were the visionaries and pioneers behind long-aged sparkling wines. The first Gramona III Lustros was created in 1951 and was a pioneering sparkling in that it was designed for long aging (It was released on the market in 1961). Up until the late 20th century, the two brothers were at the helm of a small winery, highly regarded for the quality of its wines. The soul of this generation, Josep Lluis Gramona, is still out and about on the land every day, ensuring that the Gramona ship sails smoothly.
