Over the years, the Avinyò pétillant has continued to be one of our best-selling wines, and while it might seem like it no longer needs an introduction, we still sing the praises of this much-loved, spritzy white wine that is perfect for summertime patio drinking.
Avinyó is one of the top Cava producers of the Penedès region, in Catalunya, just outside Barcelona. A little over a decade ago, Avinyó introduced a new kind of wine, a vi d’agulla, which is a Catalan term for wine with a prickle, as the wine is bottled with hint of natural effervescence captured during the winemaking process.
The Avinyó pétillant is made fruit from two organically farmed estate vineyards, and the 2021 vintage is a blend made of 70% Muscat de Frontignan, 20% Macabeo, and 10% Xarel-lo. The wine is fermented with indigenous yeast in stainless steel tanks, and then undergoes secondary fermentation in tank via the Charmat method. The wine is bottled in January. Vibrant and refreshing, it’s a traditional summertime drink in Penedès and is wonderful served from a porrón, so grab one of those as well when you next stop by.
