About The Producer

Castell d’Age is the creation of three generations of women in the Junyent family, located in the Beguda Baixa, in the heart of the Alt Penedés region. It all started with Aurèlia Figuera and then was transformed by Anne Marie Comtesse in the late 1980s with the production of Cavas. Anne Marie is a pioneer in introducing organic farming in the region. With the addition of her daughter Olivia Junyent to the business, they are now certified organic and biodynamic agriculture, a method that respects the relationship between humans and earth.

Terroir & Vineyard Practices:

The Bodega is certified organic and biodynamic at the strictest levels and this wine is made without the addition of sulfur. This comes from young Grenache Blanc vines grown in Can Pujades on Clay soils.
