Albet I Noya Brut Natural Reserva

Winemaker's Notes:

"Whilst the origins of viticulture at Can Vendrell go back to the middle ages, it was not until 1903 that the Albet family established itself at the estate. Joan Albet i Rovirosa came to Can Vendrell to oversee the replanting of the estate after the Phylloxera plague. This process involved planting American rootstock and grafting the desired variety onto that rootstock. After replanting the vineyards he stayed on as manager of the 210 hectare estate of which 90 hectares were vineyards. "It was the fourth and current generation, Josep Maria Albet i Noya, that introduced organic farming methods to the vineyards. Josep Maria took over the management of the estate after his father's death in 1972 and at the end of the seventies started producing his first organic wines. With the success of that first wine produced specifically for the Danish market, they gradually moved the entire estate over to organic farming. "The family also finally acquired the estate that they had been farming for four generations. At this point, they began a long process of continuous rennovation of the cellar, as well as switching 100% of the estate over to organic farming methods. "We currently control 80.6 hectares of vineyards as well as buying grapes from local farmers who have converted to organic farming, paying the highest prices in the Penedès and advising the farmers to ensure the highest quality." - Winery

Of the 101 hectares of land they control, 76 are dedicated exclusively to the cultivation of vines. The vineyards cover the slopes of the inheritance of the west end of the range of Ordal, following the undulations of the terrain and having on terraces or on slopes facing the south side. Like all good soils vinifera, the Can Vendrell are poor in organic matter with variable contents of clay and sand on a bed of limestone, but a permeable soil with good moisture retention capacity. Leaving aside the suitability of these soils for vineyards, other factors contribute to define the specific implementation of different types of vines, such as orientation, sunshine, humidity and altitude terrain. To optimize the quality of 15 varieties grown at Can Vendrell, has well considered what were the best land for the proper maturation of each. Read less
