D.O. Alella is the smallest wine region in Catalonia. Only 15 minutes by car from Barcelona, we can discover this peaceful and beautiful spot next to the Mediterranean Sea. Up in the hills of Alella, we find a Can Boquet estate from the XIV century, which is the heart of the family project Bouquet d´Alella. A story of passion and dedication which began many years ago with Antoni Cerdà and since 2010 it has been continued by his children. The name of the vineyard comes from the combination of estate name Can Boquet and the French word bouquet, which refers to the set of aromas we may find in wine.
Bouquet d`Alella offers premium, organic wines, elaborated from local and international grape varieties like: Pansa Blanca, Garnacha Blanca, Syrah, Garnacha Negra, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Monestrell. Nowadays, the vineyard owns more than 13ha of 25 years old vines, located on slopes near towns Alella, Teià y Vilassar de Dalt (DO Alella). Passion, respect to nature and organic techniques of cultivation characterize the vineyard. The proximity to the Mediterranean Sea, the diversity of sub climates due to different distribution of vines and sandy soil, locally called “sauló”, define a unique “terroir” of wines from Bouquet d´Alella.
The Vineyard offers us limited production of contemporary, fresh and expressive wines with a variety of intense aromas, which perfectly represent the local terroir. Bouquet d´Alella is a fabulous match between tradition and care of local grape varieties with high technology in order to bring us quality wines with a Mediterranean flavour. The family motto says “Live tradition, experience innovation”, which perfectly describes their aspirations.Wines have been many times highlighted by Guia Peñin and awarded at Premis Vinari competition.
