Alella Vinícola is the cellar whose wines have brought renown to the town of Alella since 1906. We currently produce, make and bottle wines and cavas in two designated origins,namely D.O. ALELLA and D.O. CAVA.
Like the cellar itself, most of the vineyards we use are located in the centre of the town of Alella, the heart of the designated origin, 15 kilometres to the north of the city of Barcelona. We market wines, rich wines,sweet wines and cavas under different brandnames, such as MARFIL, IVORI, VALLMORA and VIOLETA. Our wines are characterised by the Mediterranean climate, the area's singular geological nature and the striking traits of the varieties typical of our designated origin.
Bright straw colour. Pure nose, layered with fresh almonds and nuts with pale fruit, citrus and an herbal spiciness. Nice palate, full bodied and textured with a slight skin/phenolic presence, notes of citrus zest, apple, pear and an herbal spiciness, good length as well. (Andreas Larsson, 2018. Best Sommelier of the wolrd in 2007).
