The origins of Parés Baltà date back to 1790 when the first vines were planted in the mountains of Penedès, Spain (just west of Barcelona), on the estate that now surrounds the winery. In 1978, Joan Cusiné Hill took over the winery, beginning a family business that’s now in its third generation. Today his two grandsons, Joan and Josep Cusiné Carol, grow the grapes, while their wives, Maria Elena Jimenez and Marta Casas, are the winemakers and oenologists. Remaining respectful of long standing winemaking traditions, Parés Baltà welcomes innovation as well, with respect for the environment above all. Accordingly, all their vineyards are certified organic or biodynamic. Cultivating their grapes without any herbicides, pesticides, or chemical fertilizers, they employ a flock of sheep to fertilize and weed the vineyards after harvest, as well as hives of bees to assist in pollination. This easygoing white is made from 47% parellada, 31% macabeu and 22% xarel-lo – the same grapes used in Cava production. Bright and clean, with no oak, this white refreshes and entices with abundant stone fruit notes mingled with hints of citrus and herbs. Wonderfully balanced. Certified organic.
