Regular price $63.00

Oriol Artigas is our dude! Oriol makes natural wine in Alella, a 25 minute drive north from Barcelona proper. His jam is finding old coastal vineyards and restoring them using organic farming, bringing out their Mediterranean charm. He allows vegetation to grow among the vines, prunes very little and likes to let the grapes do the talking. He deals largely in Pansa Blanca (the local variety of Xarel.lo) but makes fresh, ethereal reds, as well. We've had the pleasure of hosting him at Fool's, and make sure we always have his juice on hand. Vale!!

La Prats is a field blend located right next to the Mediterranean. Red and white grapes are co-fermented to make this rosat, aged on the lees for 10 months and bottled without fining, filtration or SO2. Texture, fleshy, bright red fruits and citrus. Marked by refreshing acidity. Loves the park and letting the dogs off leash.
