' Vineyards - Alta Alella

Vineyards

vinyes
The property has been declared and certified organic from the very beginning where herbicides, pesticides or insecticides are not used.

The estate is just two kilometres away from the Mediterranean Sea and the vineyards are planted on slopes and terraces between 100 and 250m above sea level. The vineyards are grown on Sauló soil, one of the most important elements that determine the wines from Alta Alella. Sauló is an acidic and sandy soil with a low limestone content, low organic matter and good natural water drainage.

Each variety has been planted according to the orientation of the plot. The slopes facing south are planted with varieties destined for sweet and red wines, requiring a higher degree of ripeness; whilst the slopes facing the north give aromatic and floral wines, which is ideal for cavas and white wines.

Currently, Alta Alella controls 60 productive hectares within the DO Alella and DO Cava.
