Pares Balta is a tiny, top end winery, founded in the 1930's in an area that has been producing wine since the 1700's. The family-owned winery produces Cavas, and still red and white wines. The vineyards are spread out over five premium estates, with a total of 176 hectares of low yielding vines. The vineyards enjoy a balmy microclimate and are located only a few miles form the Mediterranean Sea in the Penedes and Cava appellations. Pars Balt uses a multitude of grape varietals for their wines, from the traditional cava grapes of Macabeo, Xarel.lo, and Parellada; to Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon for velvety rich reds; and finally, to non-traditional Catalan grape varietals such as Chardonnay or even Gewurztraminer for oak aged whites. While not an "official" organic winery, they use many eco-friendly viticulture and winemaking practices such as allowing sheep to fertilize the vineyards naturally.More about the Winery

Dark red colour . Dominating scent of red currant. Blueberry flavour.
Much better the quality than the price.
