ABOUT THE PRODUCER
About Litrona Partida Creus Tempranillo
Litrona Partida Creus Tempranillo is a liter of organically farmed Tempranillo, with minimal intervention, fermented with native yeasts in stainless steel and bottled unfined, unfiltered, and zero SO2.
Litrona is an ode to the liter format which the importer heavily consumed during his college years in Spain, except back then it was liters of beer. Like many of the wines they import, Litrona is focused on drinkability which is why 750ml just wasn’t gonna cut it. Thoughtful farming and minimal intervention winemaking remain the pillars of the brand where native grape varieties from each region are the main protagonist.
About Partida Creus
Massimo Marchiori and Antonella Gerona are an Italian couple from Piedmont. Both are architects who initially moved to Barcelona for work reasons, but around the year 2000, they moved out to the country, seeking a slower-paced lifestyle. They settled in the Massís de Bonastre (Baix Penedés), which is characterized by its clay and limestone soils. They started farming all kinds of produce and foodstuffs there but had trouble finding local wines that were natural and authentic, so they started making their own, recovering old vines of local grape varietals.
In most cases, these vineyards were close to abandoned. Whenever they found a new vineyard, they would go to the nearby town, find out who the owner was and approach them to buy, or at least farm, the vineyard, organically. People think they’re crazy for doing this, as the vineyards are very old and low-yielding, and in most cases, the grape varieties are obsolete. Some have been disqualified from D.O. for lack of color, as was the case with Sumoll, others were never even accepted. Now Massimo and Antonella are known as the crazy Italians making incredible natural wines with the grapes that all of the locals had written off in favor of more popular “international” varietals.
