Special Tasting: Celler De Les Aus

--
In an amphitheater facing the Mediterranean, just beyond the outskirts of Barcelona, the vines of Alta Alella bask in the Spanish sun.

The winery is family-run and organically farmed, producing "transparent wines that reflect soil and vintage characteristics." Run by Josep Maria Pujol-Busquets, Cristina Guillén, and their daughters, Mireia & Georgina, Celler De Les Aus (The Bird's Winery) is the first from DO Cava to produce with no added sulfur.

The former assistant winemaker and current brand ambassador, Laura Bret, intimated during her visit to the shop Wednesday morning that the family is dedicated to organic farming, but it's not the certification that really matters - it's the work done in the fields that counts. Cleverly, she stated that they don't care about biodynamic certification, because they "produce dynamically." There is so much attention to detail in the vineyards that the juice doesn't require tampering or synthetic manipulation.

Laura is dropping by again this evening from 5-6:30pm to share the wines of Celler De Les Aus. They are a brilliant sparkling & still white made from the pansa blanca grape (xarel-lo) and an edgy, pure red made from mataró (monastrell). The wines are named after the birds of the Serralada de Marina's Natural Park, where the vines are located, and they make an exemplary addition to our current sojourn in Spain.
