Founded in 1790, Pares Balta is located in the Penedes winemaking region of Catalonia, Spain. In the 1970s the Cusine family took ownership of the winery. Today, the estate is managed by a 3rd generation ‒ Messrs. Joan and Josep Cusine Carol who focus on the business side of the winery and their wives Maria Elena Jimenez and Marta Casas who make the wines. Only six miles from the Balearic Sea, the five estate vineyards are planted on stony, calcareous soils comprised of clay and marine fossils at elevations of 560-2,624 feet. They are certified organic by the Catalan Council of Organic Production. The estates 494 acres are planted primarily to indigenous varietals ‒ Xarel-lo and Macabeo are grown at lower elevations while Parellada, and Garnacha are planted at higher elevations. With a range of soil types and microclimates Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Noir, Mencia and Merlot are grown at higher elevations whilst Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Tempranillo, Muscat, Petit Verdot and Touriga Nacional are planted in the estate parcels that have a warmer growing climate. In addition to Cava, the portfolio includes three levels of still wines: the accessible Origen series, R-Evolution wines produced with indigenous varietals and Microcuvee, limited edition wines produced only in the finest vintages.
