Alella’s wines have been firmly embedded in Barcelona since Roman times. Today they still thrive near to the big city and are the smallest Designation of Origin in Catalonia. As you explore it, you’ll follow in the footsteps of the Laietani wines, the birth of the cooperative movement, the scent of ancient rural life and the personality of urban wines which were symbolic of the burgeoning Catalan upper middle classes. The salinity and minerality of its “Pansa Blanca” white wines, light reds, long-aged sparkling wines and persistent sweet wines provide a range of choices for all palates.
