This territory is formed by a broad valley located between two mountain ranges: the coastal mountains of the Massís del Garraf, and the pre-coastal mountain range, parallel and a few kilometres inland from the Mediterranean coast. It is situated between the historic cities of Barcelona and Tarragona.

The open valley slopes gently down from the impressive rocky mass of Montserrat to the sea. It is formed by a multitude of mounds and small hills shaped by the drainage basins of the rivers Anoia and Foix, from which this sub-zone of Cava takes its name.

The stabilising influence of the sea, along with the imposing protective wall against the north winds that is formed by the Montserrat massif, give this region a temperate climate - mild winters and summers with some rainfall.

Valls d’Anoia Foix is an ideal area for growing grapes and making wine, as evidenced by its long-standing tradition as a wine-producing region going back over 2000 years.

Within this natural framework, the grapes for Cava come from plots that enjoy a diversity of microclimates, as a result of the proximity to the coast and the altitude of some vineyards - as high as 750m above sea level. This diversity allows Cava's three main native grape varieties to fit into the region's different landscapes according to their needs, with Xarel-lo predominating in the coastal area, Macabeo in the valley and Parellada in the higher areas.
