Bohigas is a strictly artisanal producer who works organically and with indigenous varieties such as Xarel-lo and Macabeo. They practice the old tradition of allowing the wines to age in bottle on the lees for extended periods of time before release. Critics John Gilman and Robert Parker have both reviewed their wines and have been blown away by the quality and value.
