The family-run winery Alta Alella Mirgin in the foothills of the Parc Serrelada Natural Park offers a range of excellent tours by foot or in a 4-wheel vehicle among the vineyards, offering some of the most spectacular views of Barcelona. Since the winery is located inside a Natural Park the wines that are produced are as natural as possible, and the birds, butterflies and bees help with the pollination and protect against plagues. All tours finish with a tasting of cavas, reds and whites with unforgettable views over the vineyard. . Since its beginning, the winery has been based on certified organic farming, creating a well-balanced ecosystem that respects the native flora and fauna of this privileged agricultural area. Its organic and natural wines and cava are present on the wine lists at some of the most prestigious restaurants all over the world.
Alta Alella Mirgin produces around 300,000 bottles a year, two-thirds cava and the rest still wines, and around 40% is exported. There are 17 hectares of vines planted on characteristic soils locally called sauló. The decomposed granite, without lime or organic matter, helps to give acidity to the wines. Local grapes Pansa Blanca (Xarel.lo) and Mataró (Monastrell or Mourvèdre) are used in their wines and cavas. Other grapes grown are Macabeo, Parellada, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay (white) and Syrah, Petit Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Garnacha (red).
Besides its high quality hallmark, inherent in every product, Alta Alella Mirgin has also improved as a cellar open to the public and in taylor-made wine tourism options: Enogastronomy, art, health, nature and unique experiences.
As a result, the winery has created its unique and personalized wine environment where quiet walks, wine and food pairings, enogastronomic activities with Private Chefs, yoga classes in the vineyards, or helicopter flights over the estate and the surroundings are possible. Alta Alella’s Wine Tourism Center is also an ideal setting to celebrate exclusive events, incentives or seminars.
This is a great activity for when friends and family visit!
