The estate

Les Acàcies is a farm located at an average alti­tude of 500 m within the municipal area of Avi­nyó, in the northern Bages plateau.

With a rainfall of 635 mm mainly concentrat­ed in spring, the Mediterranean climate domi­nates, with a continental tendency.

All our vineyards are located on the same es­tate around the winery.

Micro-vinification with attention to detail

Being a small winery, we make our wines by micro-vinification in small quantities. This al­lows us to achieve the best expression of each variety and its terroir and take careo f many detalls that on a large scale is not posible to attend.

For the aging of Avinius and Instant de Flor, we use French oak barrels. Balsamic and spicy aromas appear, very respectful with the varieties of these wines.

For Desbordant and Opositor we use differ­ent types of cement tanks, ovoids, buckets or amphora. Tannins are softer and floral aromas arise.

The excellent mi­cro-oxygenation they provide is very adequate to enhance the mouthfeel, achieving more smoothness and complexity.

Our vineyards

Our 11 hectares of vineyards are surrounded by pine forests, oaks, holm oaks and shrubs suchas rosemary and heather bushes, predominant in the reliefs that surround the Relat river, which runs through our farm.

The estate’s soils are mostly clay with sand¬stone. This feature gives tension to our wines. We also have some loamy vineyards with more drained soils that prevent compaction and maintain a good permeability. This variability allow us to achieve a more complete and bal¬anced final blending.

Our greatest goal is to obtain the best pos¬sible raw material: a grape of supreme quality. That is why we put our efforts and care to main¬tain the best balance between natural resources and the productivity of the vine, along with the minimum external intervention (farming tasks or outer agents).

To give structure to the soil, we apply plant covers, which take root and provide very valu¬able organic matter.

Fertilization is implemented through ho¬meopathic preparations made from plants and flowers, mostly collected in our own farm, and through mixture crops containing mineral, veg¬etal and animal substances, which, exposed to natural forces, grant rich nutrients.
