D.O. Penedès and Corpinnat
Ramon Jané broke 500 years of family tradition in 2006 by vinifying a portion of his grapes with his wife Mercè Cuscó and best friend/oenologist Toni Carbó as Mas Candí—they had always sold their crop to large cava producers. They remain grape growers first, farming biodynamically on the inland edge of the Garraf massif and crafting their wines in the vineyard. Over centuries of tasting, the Jané family has tailored their farming to focus on indigenous xarel•lo, which grows best in their living calcareous clay soils.
Toni and Ramon craft still xarello: Desig, QX, La Pura
They craft vintage Corpinnat sparkling wine: Brut Nature, Segunyola, Indomable, Prohibit
They also craft classic Penedès red from the oldest cabernet vineyard in the region: Les Forques, Sol + Sol
