ALTA ALELLA

Family shot 2023

Alta Alella is located just steps from the Mediterranean Sea in the midst of Serralada de Marina Natural Park – only 19 kilometres from Barcelona. Founded in 1991 by Josep María & Cristina Pujol-Busquets Guilléns, the family has been devoted to farming organically from the beginning.

Josep María and Cristina have spent their whole lives sharing the wine and cava culture – with their daughters Mireia and Georgina who grew up surround by vineyards, harvests and bottles and with the public through guest experiences of yoga sessions by the vineyards, painting classes for kids using wine instead of crayons, tastings in English, and other cultural events.

Knowledge, passion, perseverance and dedication.

For the Pujol-Busquets Guilléns family, it is a way of understanding wine and cava responsibly by making it entertaining and innovative. Committed to nature, their respect for the land becomes the celebration of a new experience.

Alta Alella vineyard valley

The property is amphitheatre shaped, facing the sea with 17 hectares of vines planted on slopes and terraces between 100 – 250m above sea level on Sauló soil – an acidic, white granite-based sandy soil with low limestone content, low organic matter and excellent natural drainage. The family is committed to recovering the local grape varieties Pansa Blanca (Xarel.lo) and Mataró (Monastrell or Mourvèdre), as well as promoting cultivation of disease resistant plants so as to facilitate minimum intervention in the vineyard and winery.

Alta Alella produces around 300,000 bottles a year, harvested by hand, taking care to pick each varietal in it’s best and healthiest condition. Production is two-thirds cava and the rest are still wines, producing up to fifty different wines for blending every vintage.
