Alta Alella is a family-run project which started more than twenty years ago by the enologist Josep Maria Pujol-Busquets and his wife Cristina Guillen. Alta Alella is the closest winery to Barcelona (10 km), it’s located within the agricultural area of a natural park known as the “Serralada de Marina’. The estate is just two km away from the Mediterranean Sea and the vineyards  are planted on slopes and terraces between 100 and 250 meters above the sea level.

 

The vines are grown on Sauló soil which is one of the most important element that determines the characters of wines from Alta Alella: an acidic white granite-based sand with low limestone content, low organic matter and good drainage.

 

Fleeing from standardization, year after year, Josep Maria's aim is to produce ‘transparent’ wines, that reflect soil and vintage characteristics. The harvest is carried out by hand, paying individual attention to each plant.

 

Currently Alta Alella farms 60 ha within the D.O Alella (the smallest D.O. in Spain) and the D.O. Cava. The winery works with micro-vinifications, many different grape varieties and innovative techniques, producing up to 50 different wines every year. The cava ages on the lees between 15 and 60 months and is released on the market just after being disgorged (the disgorgement date appears on every bottle).
