Profile of Parés Baltà

Parés Baltà is a tiny, top-end winery founded in the 1930s in an area that has been producing wine since the 1700s. The family-owned winery produces Cavas and still red and white wines. The vineyards are spread over five premium estates, with 176 hectares of low-yielding vines. The vineyards enjoy a balmy microclimate and are located only a few miles from the Mediterranean Sea in the Penedès and Cava appellations. Pars Balt uses many 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.

The excellent wines of Pars Balt have been praised in various International and National wine publications, including Decanter (UK), Capital (German), “Lo Mejor de la Gastronomia (“The best of Gastronomy,” Spain), Vinos de España (Wines of Spain), Guia Peñin de Los Vinos de España (Peñin Guide to Spanish Wines), Weinwirschaft (Germany), and Cuisine et Vins de France (France), amongst many others. Furthermore, the “Dominio Cusine 1790” wine was selected by the prestigious Spanish sommeliers Sr. Custodio L. Zamarra, Fernando Gurucharri, and Jose Luis Casado as one of Spain’s “Mythical Wines” in the “Total Wine Guide 2003”. Unfortunately, only 35 Spanish wines were awarded this honor.
