Oriol Artigas

Oriol Artigas is a chemist of primary training and second winemaker, who in 2011 began his adventure in the world of wine. Today it cultivates 8 hectares of vineyards on the ancient area of ​​Alella, located 15 km north of Barcelona. Alella, which today has 220 hectares of vineyards and is perhaps the smallest wine growing area in Spain, is divided in two by a mountainous mountain range parallel to the coast, which divides the most exposed vineyards, with more precocious maturity, from the internal area where the harvest is delayed by two weeks. Oriol works an enormous quantity of vines, if they count more than 50, in an absolutely natural way, following the biodynamic lunar calendar. In the cellar it is a purist of naturalness and tries to intervene as little as possible in the winemaking process so as not to squander the heritage that the vineyard has given it. Oriol produces wines as he likes to drink them, he tries to get all the grapes from his territory and then transforms them in a natural way to get a real juice that tastes of sea and Mediterranean scrub. 25,000 bottles produced that usually end quickly. Among his wines; La Rumbera, white wine made with Pansa Bianca, El Rumbero, red wine obtained from a blend of Garnacha Negra, Syrah and Merlot, and La Bella produced with Pansa Bianca grapes that come from 60-year-old vineyards.
