Alta Alella is a family-run project, created more than 20 years ago. Situated between Tiana and Alella, within the privileged agricultural area of the Natural Park known as the “Serralada de Marina”, its history began when the entrepreneur and oenologist, Josep Maria Pujol-Busquets Camps, and his wife, Cristina Guillén Soldevila, bought the Noucentista estate, Can Genís.
With the backdrop of the Mediterranean Sea, just 2km away from the vineyards, the couple restored the charm of the estate by refurbishing the country house, recovering old vines, some of them being more than 50 years old, and building a modern and organic cellar where they work hard to produce wines with a reputation for purity.
Since the start, the cellar has based its practices on certified organic agriculture. As well as its high quality hallmark, inherent in every product, Alta Alella is also open to the public for wine tourism.
Alta Alella is the nearest cellar to Barcelona, and its organic wines are present on the wine lists at some of the most prestigious restaurants all over the world.
