Pla De Bages DO Temperature, Rainfall and Sunshine

Bagés is a small but old winemaking area that has been enjoying a resurgence thanks to the work of pioneering bodegas who won regional DO status in 1995, then national status in 1998.

Small family-owned wineries and larger cooperatives are studying new production methods and new varieties. For the time being native grapes, especially Picapoll and Macabeo, predominate, but it seems likely that the French varieties so well adapted to the climate and terrain here will soon become the focus of attention.
