Oriol Artigas

Oriol Artigas is a chemist of primary education 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, which is 15 km north of Barcelona. Alella, which now has 220 hectares of vineyards and is perhaps the smallest wine-producing area in Spain, is divided into two by a mountainous mountain range parallel to the coast, which divides the most exposed vineyards, with the earliest maturity, from the internal area where the harvest is delayed for two weeks. Oriol works an enormous quantity of vines, there are more than 50, in an absolutely natural way, following the biodynamic lunar calendar. In the cellar he is a purist of naturalness and tries to intervene as little as possible in the winemaking process so as not to waste the heritage that the vineyard has given him. Oriol produces wines as he likes to drink them, he tries to make the grapes get everything he can from his territory and then transforms them in a natural way to get a real juice that smells of the sea and Mediterranean scrub. 25,000 bottles produced that usually end quickly. Among his wines; La Rumbera, a white wine made from Pansa Bianca, El Rumbero, a red wine made from a blend of Garnacha Negra, Syrah and Merlot, and La Bella produced with grapes of Pansa Bianca that come from 60-year-old vineyards.
