Parés Baltà is a family owned winery in the Penedès region of Spain with traditions dating back to the 18th century. In 1790, the first vines were planted on the estate that now surrounds the winery. Today however, more than 220 years later, almost everything is different. The acquisition of the winery in 1978 by Mr. Joan Cusiné Hill, born in 1917 in Bellvei del Penedés, and the addition of the exemplary estates “La Torreta” and “Els Pujols” mark the beginning of the Parés Baltà...

Lemony, finesse, quaffable. An organic traditional sparkling made by a family owned winery from the classic cava varieties: Parallada, Macabeo and Xarel-lo. It offers impressive complexity at this price - notes of lemons, melon, pear and guava are rounded out with wild flowers and nutty, toasted pastries. The palate follows suit with lemony-quince flavours, honey and lanolin and an attractive tangy bitter finish. Nice finesse and richness with a lovely, creamy mousse.See detailed press review

Possibly the best value, organic sparkling wine sold in BC, but inexplicably not in government stores. The nose is a fruity, savoury, enticing mix of wild herbs, citrus and stony mineral notes. The palate is a mix of green apples, lemon peels, nuts and citrus rind with fresh, cleansing acidity balanced by its impressive creamy textures. Extremely food-friendly and well worth seeking out in the private sector.See detailed press review
Like biting into a fresh apple, but there is much more here. Floral with dried pungent flowers with notes of almond. Well balanced between texture and acidity. Aromatic complexity with a biscuity finish.See detailed press review
