CAN BONASTRE WINERY PENEDES
WINES WITH A HISTORY

The Can Bonastre Winery prioritizes quality and pays meticulous attention to every aspect of the preparation process. Our comprehensive approach to winemaking takes care of every detail within our reach. This symbiosis of man and the land combines the traditional arts of planting, harvesting, preparation and bottling.

The wines at Can Bonastre Winery are small treasures, the result of up to 13 different varieties blended with taste and originality. To please all palates, we opt for modern and young wines such as our Pinot Noir 100%, without neglecting more classical proposals such as our Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot coupages.

The Can Bonastre Winery has modern facilities and a young, highly qualified technical staff have allowed us to achieve the desired results in a limited production of wines.
