The Penedès jam
We run a family business that inherited a long tradition in the field and the cultivation of vines dating back to the seventeenth century.
Our love and appreciation for the land has led us to look for alternatives in the production of the grape, which is our raw material, and offering consumers new flavors.
“Vinyet jams are made 100% from grapes, without added sugar.”

Our vineyards are located in the middle of the Penedès where the influence of the sun and the Mediterranean make it a privileged area for growing vines.
We have vineyards in the municipalities of Pla del Penedès and specifically in CA L’AVI, a village of Subirats. We also have a workshop built in 2011 to produce jams complying with the requirements of food safety regulations.
