The vineyards at Can Genis are all planted on Sauló soil, one of the key distinguishing factors of Alella's wines. Sauló is an acidic, sandy soil with low limestone content, low organic matter and poor water retention. The estate is just 2 km from the Mediterranean, with the vineyards planted on slopes and terraces between 150 and 300m altitude.

Each variety has been planted according to the orientation of the plot: The south facing slopes are planted with varieties destined for reds and sweet wines requiring higher ripeness levels, whilst the north facing slopes give aromatic and floral wines, ideal for the whites and cavas.

There are currently 6 hectares of vineyards in production at Can Genis, with a further 6.5 hectares being planted. The red varieties planted are Pinot Noir, Syrah, Mataró and Cabernet Sauvignon, whilst the whites are Pansa Blanca, Chardonnay, Viogner and Sauvignon Blanc.

The estate has been organically farmed from the outset, which is explained in detail here. Treatments are kept to a minimum using only sulphur, copper hydroxide, and surface treatments which do not penetrate the skins of the grapes or leave any form of residue. No herbicides, pesticides or inorganic fertilisers are used. Vineyards undergo green pruning and green harvesting (removal of excess grapes to achieve high quality levels - based on the relationship between grape quantity, leaf canopy area and available water). All grapes are hand picked using small boxes.
