WE ARE A COMMITTED
Vallformosa is a responsible and sustainable company in all its actions. We are committed to caring for our natural and social environment.
In the highest area of the Penedés, more than 500 meters above sea level, there is a splendid area of vineyards. Known as the "Zone +500", this environment is home to a unique natural biodiversity in the Penedés where the vineyards are naturally found between hills and mountains. Vallformosa collaborates directly in conservation programs for this space and in the recovery of autochthonous varieties that adapt to the conditions of land and altitude.
The grapes from this mountainous area ripen more slowly thanks to the day-night temperature difference which gives them high-quality organoleptic features.
Vallformosa's technical team analyses different plots throughout the year to find the best vineyards. They involve strains with many years of history, planted freely, without trellis and with a low yield. Their fruits are excellent and give us the highest quality to our products.
These plots are part of the Vallformosa Plus project, which allows us long-term collaboration with wine growers committed to nurturing and delivering quality grapes, with a guarantee of total traceability and with special technical support from Vallformosa.
INNOVATION IN THE TERRITORY
The quality of our wines and sparkling wines is controlled from the beginning of the vineyard cycle. To maintain this quality in a homogeneous way, we use technologies and drones to monitor the growth and ripening of grapes. In addition, the technical team is in charge of visiting and designing the phytosanitary and vegetative actions in each and every one of the plots. Finally, in the wine growers department, and through the open channels of the Yo Soy Vallformosa Club (I am Vallformosa Club) , they design educational and training materials.
COMMITMENT TO PEOPLE
The work of our more than
500 winegrowers it's our essence
The work of our more than 500 winegrowers is the essence of Vallformosa. The grape that they cultivate meticulously throughout the year is the base of all our wines and cavas. This is a close relationship that was born with the Yo Soy (I am) Vallformosa Club, a constant meeting place between the winery and the winegrowers. All our winegrowers and their families are part of this Club, where they have access to different services and advantages. We are family!

Vallformosa is an inclusive company and collaborates with different workforce inclusion projects for people with disabilities, mental health conditions and other groups at risk of exclusion, creating opportunities for community and entry to the labour market. We have collaborated with "Mas Alborná" and the "ARED Foundation” on different inclusive projects.
