The D.O Alella is located in the vicinity of Barcelona between the sea and the mountains. The wines from this region are the product of small scale vineyards, hidden from the curious eyes of visitors. The vineyards and winemakers have over the years have fought admirably for their survival against the expansion of large luxury urban areas. Luckily they have been successful in their fight, and most of the vineyards in the DO Alella are located under protected areas. The wines here represent a blend between tradition and modernity, the countryside and the city, the sea and the mountains, and the side harmony that combines northern serenity and Mediterranean passion.
Alta Alella is the conclusion of a family project that was created almost 30 years ago by Josep María Pujol-Busquets and his wife, Cristina Guillén. They started this project when they bought the noucentista farm of Can Genís, located 2km away from the Mediterranean, between the municipalities of Alella and Tiana. This is the winery that is closest to Barcelona, and its organic wines can be found on the menus of some of the best restaurants in the world. Since the very beginning, it has been a modern winery. The respect for the environment and nature have been their base to produce pure and transparent wines and cavas.
