Alta Alella - Alella / Tiana
Alta Alella is the culmination of a family project that began more than twenty years ago with Josep Maria Pujol-Busquets and
his wife Cristina Guillen, when they acquired the nineteenth-century estate Can Genis, located 2 km from the Mediterranean Sea between the towns of Alella and Tiana. It’s the closest cellar to Barcelona and it’s organic wines are
in the menus of some of the best restaurants of the world.
From the beginning, in this modern cellar, the organic agriculture and the respect for the environment and nature have been the basis for making wines and cavas in the DO Alella and DO Cava, with the will for transparency, being a true reflection of the terrain and the vintage.
Alta Alella is opened to the world and has a clear vocation for enoturism. Wine is a part of an area identity, and in this unique wine environment everyone can enjoy a wide range of wine activities.
