This Saturday, June 11th will kick off the 11th Ordal Peach Market in Sant Pau d’Ordal, where peaches take on a starring role, when the town welcomes a multitude of visitors from all over Catalonia every weekend during June, July, and August. 
The market is open in the morning from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., and besides buying peaches from local producers, visitors can also participate in activities, workshops, pairings... all linked to this product and region.

It’s an activity that brings together local cuisine, peaches, and our wines, in order to offer the opportunity to enjoy the best of the region through all of your senses. The experience starts at the vineyard itself, at the Can Vendrell de la Codina estate, where you will find out about our philosophy and history, as well as our wines, and you will take a guided tour through our facilities. Then the activity moves on to Sant Pau d’Ordal in order to set off on a gastronomic itinerary that will take us to three of the village’s restaurants (Cal Pere del Maset, Cal Saldoni and Cal Xim) to enjoy a novel tapa made by each of the restaurant chefs, where peaches will play a starring role, accompanied by our wines. 

Days of the route: June (Saturday, 18th and Sunday, 26th), July (Sunday 3rd and Sunday, 17th)

An Outstanding Vinum Nature Fair, with 21 Medals in the Golden Leaf Awards

The Classic Penedès Brut 21 stands out, winning the award in the highest-ranking category, the Golden Leaf Superior  

The show will bring together over a hundred organic vineyards from all over Spain at Barcelona’s Maritime Museum 

On 20th June, the 6th Vinum Nature Fair will take place in Barcelona, a prestigious fair bringing together the best organic wines in Spain. Within the framework of the fair, the Golden Leaf Awards, which recognise excellence among all of the wines present in the show, will also be announced.  

This year, our wines have won a total of 21 medals in the contest. Of all of them, the Classic Penedès Brut 21 stands out, the winner of the GOLDEN LEAF SUPERIOR. The Chardonnay and Parellada sparkling wine, which just won an award for the best sparkling wine of the DO Penedès a few days ago, shares this highly valued category with only twelve other wines in all of Spain.  

In the GOLDEN LEAF category, the white wines El Fanio, Marian Rion and Lignum were recognised. The red wines Ocell de Foc and Reserva Martí also won medals in this category, as did the Classic Penedès Brut Reserva.  

In the SILVER LEAF section, 12 of our wines were recognised. The white wines 3 Macabeus, Xarel·lo and Blanc XXV; the Pinot Noir rosé, and the red wines Belat, Ull de Llebre, La Milana and Syrah Col·lecció. Silver medals also went to Dolç Adrià and the sparkling wines Classic Penedès Brut Naure Reserve3 and Pinot Noir Brut Rosat.  

Finally, Brut Barrica 21 Reserva 5 and the sparkling wine ancestral NOSODOS+ won the contest’s bronze medal. It should be mentioned that with 21 medals, we are the vineyard with the largest number of wines winning Golden Leaf Awards.  

The Vinum Nature Fir is being held this year for the sixth time, and will take place at Barcelona’s Maritime Museum. With over 100 vineyards from all over Spain, Vinum Nature seeks to be a point of reference in Southern Europe for wines that are organic, natural, and sustainable. Parallel to the fair, there is also a full program of tastings and activities aimed at wine professionals.
