Characteristics of Parés Baltà Calcari
Pares Balta Calcari is a white wine from Penedès produced by the Pares Balta winery. It is a varietal Xarelo.
The grapes come from the Finca Pares Balta, which is situated at 254 metres in altitude and the soils are calcareous and clay-loam.
The vineyards are biodynamic and have the Demeter certification, cultivation is done organically under the seal of the Catalan Council of Ecological Agricultural Production (CCPA). In fact, the fertilizer is obtained from a flock of sheep owned by the estate and pollination occurs with the bees from the winery's hives.
Once the grain is harvested and selected, a maceration that lasts about four hours occurs. Subsequently, the grapes are pressed and fermented at 16 ° for a period of three weeks. Pares Balta Calcari finally is aged for four months in stainless steel tanks. This is done using their method and daily movement.
Pares Balta is a family winery dating back to 1790.
The warehouse is run today by the third generation of the family and one of its hallmarks is respect for the environment.

Today, the D.O Penedès is experimenting with viticulture and winemaking like no other region in Spain, home to a vast range of different grape varieties. The region is home to traditional white and red varieties, foreign ones, noble ones, permitted grapes, experimental grapes, and those that demostrate intrinsic qualities. As well as the grapes, the production techniques used are also worth noting, the location of the vineyards, the yields per hectare, the wines produced using traditional, original or even exclusive blends, the different ageing times, as well as the complexity of the different barrels used! But the reality is, given the vast diversity, it can be difficult to pinpoint what really defines a wine from Penedès, since there are so many types of wines and wineries in the region. However, the common denominator of all the wines from Penedès continues to be balance and quality.
Parés Baltà is the fulfilment of a dream of a saga of winegrowers and producers, the Cusiné family, in their eagerness to improve and create wines that capture and show the virtues of the best winegrowing areas of Penedès. Along with tradition and modernity, Parés Baltà is one of those family-run wineries that have a true passion for natural things. The cultivation of the vineyards, respectful towards the environment, is one of the maximum identity traits of this familiar winery. For this reason, their wines have an organic cultivation certificate and they are treated biodynamically by Demeter.
