About Partida Creus CX Massis de Bonastre

Partida Creus CX Massis de Bonastre is made from Cartoixà Vermell, the pinkish-hued version of Xarel•lo. A real bombshell of freshness, a nose that plays on notes of white fruits, citrus fruits, and aromatic herbs. Tart and funky on the palate, with a long finish. Organically grown over calcareous clay soils and hand-harvested in the Baix Penedès. Macerated with the skins for nine months. Fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel tanks and ages on the lees in the tank for several months. Bottled unfined, unfiltered, and zero sulfur added.

About Partida Creus

The name Partida Creus is a reference to the crosses used for separating holdings back in the day. Massimo Marchiori and Antonella Gerona are an Italian couple from Piedmont. Both of them are architects who initially moved to Barcelona for that reason. Around the year 2000, they moved out to the country in search of a “slower” lifestyle. They settled in the Massís de Bonastre (Baix Penedés) characterized by its clay and limestone soils. There they started farming all kinds of local foodstuffs but had trouble finding wines made in the same style so they started making their own, recovering old vines of local grape varietals.

In most cases, these vineyards were close to abandoned. Whenever they find a new vineyard, they’ll go to the nearby town, find out who the owner is, and approach them to buy or at least farm the vineyard, organically. People think they’re crazy for doing this as they are very old, low-yielding vineyards and in most cases, obsolete grape varietals. Some have been disqualified from D.O. for lack of color, as was the case with Sumoll, others were never even accepted. Now they’re known as the crazy Italians making incredible natural wines with grapes that all of the locals had written off in exchange for the more “international” varietals
