Succés Vinícola, Parellada Experiéncia
This grape is often tucked into cava blends and largely overlooked as a single varietal. Tastes of bright lemon-lime and pear, nice and dry and slightly saline.
Place: Conca de Barberà, Spain
Albert Canela and Mariona Vendrell started making wine in 2011 when they were just twenty. Based in the hills of Conca de Barberà, southwest of Barcelona in Catalonia and with investment from the local region, the couple farm organically and have a network of old-time growers who they buy their grapes from.
Albert and Mariona are two young, entrepreneurial, respecting of their environment and champions of indigenous grapes. They've chosen to work with the Trepat, Parellada and Ull de Llebre varieties that have sustained the region for generations and the couple produce a range of pure, vibrant still wines that have become the new benchmark for the Catalonian wine.
