El Badiu is an organic, barrel-aged white wine made by Vins de la Memòria with the Pansa Blanca variety in the D.O. Alella (Catalonia).

Vins de la Memòria is a tribute by sommellier Xavi Nolla to his grandfather, as he makes wines in strategic places from the Spanish Civil War. Making wines in the Terra Alta, Priorat, Conca de Barberà, Alella and Roussillon wine regions, he maps out a full historical journey and works to recover the viticulture of all of these places.

El Badiu is the sixth wine in this “memory” collection made from recovered vineyards in Can Coll, in Canyet (Alella). These vines lie in the Sierra de Montigalà, a place where the Republican side used to take refuge and which, today, is the only remaining productive plot of the Pansa Blanca variety in the whole area. They are old vines planted at 150 metres above sea level in clay and sandstone soils and cultivated according to ecological principles.

When the grapes have been harvested manually, El Badiu is vinified using this area’s traditional methods. It ferments spontaneously with native yeasts and ages for 4 months in 650-litre chestnut wood barrels and in stainless steel tanks. The wine is bottled without clarification or filtering and may contain sediment.

El Badiu is a fresh and complex wine made from a unique vineyard and vinified in the old Catalan way. A white that evokes memories of the past.

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.
