The Parés Baltà country house dates back to the year 1790 and it was built in different phases and with different materials, from adobe to stones. The old farm is now undergoing a mayor refurbishment, keeping the original structure but implementing the latest technology. A number of new tasting rooms are also being built.
While visiting the winery, one can follow the history of the bodega. At the beginning we made few wines that fermented in very big tanks. Today, it is completely the other way around: we use many and much smaller fermentation containers to be able to do a special vinification for each plot.
We use the most advanced technology in our winemaking. Our latest generation pneumatic presses control the pressing for it to be gentle, avoiding any damage to the skins and pips. Plus, we also take care of the temperature of the grapes since it is crucial all from the harvest to the end of the fermentation.
Recently we have refurbished and enlarged the barrel room, considering all the small details in order to let the wines age under the most favorable conditions. Respecting the original architecture, we have renewed the floors, walls and ceilings with corresponding insulation to keep the wines at ideal temperature, even during hot summers.
The old vaulted cellar was constructed in the beginning of the twentieth century, stone by stone. Situated 10 meters under ground with a constant temperature of 14-15º C independent of the outdoor temperature, it is perfect for the ageing both of wines and cavas.
