About Partida Creus SP White

Partida Creus SP White is sourced from 70-year-old vines of Subirat Parent, a grape related to Malvasia that thrives in the Massís del Garraf, grown organically on calcareous clay soils. Harvest is done by hand, grapes are pressed whole-cluster with stems, racked and spontaneous fermentation begins in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts. Further, aging continues for 3 months in stainless steel sur lie before being bottled unfined, unfiltered, and with zero SO². A still white wine that is delicately aromatic, crisp, and very low in ABV from the Mediterranean coast. Annual production is 2,000 Liters.

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
