the vineyards II

The vineyards planted in Alella: low-lying near the sea, open to the influence of the sun and Mediterranean breezes. The microclimate is typically Mediterranean with hot summers and mild winters. The vineyards are laid out in terraced plots and the wines produced in this area are soft and lower in alcohol and acidity.

Vineyards planted in Vilassar de Dalt: the highest part of the Serralada Litoral Natural Park (at 300m). The temperatures here are cooler and there is a greater contrast between day-time and night-time temperatures. The microclimate is more continental and the wines have greater acidity and energy.

Soil: Sauló. A sandy soil of granitic origin. It is highly permeable and can retain solar heat very well.
