Enjoying the sun before the day begins for real!

We started off with visiting Clos Lentiscus, which is situated between Vilafranca and Vila Nova, in the Garaff montains. Manel and his brother make around fourteen wines, both still and sparkling. They are all very special and they use the local grapes that are used within the DO Penedés, as well as some newer grapes.
