Celler De Les Aus, Alella Aus Pét Nat Rosé Ancestral Method 2021
Catalonia, SpainCeller de les Aus which means "The house of Birds" was born in the mid-2000's. Once a wine made out friendship it became a boutique winery focused on farming organically and crafting natural wines. The
friendship was between two men, one a sommelier and the other Joseph Maria Pujol winemaker and owner of Alta Alella. They decided to craft a naturally made Cava with no addition of enzymes, yeasts, sugar,
sulfites, no fining, no filtration. Just the juice and the non fermented juice of Pansa Blanca to start the second fermentation, this wine is called today Bruant, which is the name of a local bird. From that time on,
Celler de les Aus has produced several other wines in small quantities, all bearing the name of birds and naturally made. The grapes are always handharvested and sorted several times before entering the
winery. Though Joseph Maria loves to experiment with Mataro and the very rare Pansa Rosada (only 5ha remaining in the world), the focus is on the Pansa Blanca (Xarel-lo) grape from the DO Alella right north
of Barcelona along the sea.
