Our winery is located at Can Batlle, an ancestral homestead which appears in records from the 17th century and where wine, olive oil an even cork production date back many years.
Early twentieth century
Notable periods in the history of Can Batlle are that of the thriving years at the beginning of the twentieth century, during the time of 'teacher grandmother' Narcisa Vicens, and when one of Narcisa's daughters married Eduard Toldrà, a celebrated musician and composer tho, summer after summer, filled Can Batlle with music and culture.
Towards the end of the 1990s, we decided to continue this work, renovating and restoring the winery in keeping with today's requirements for wine making.
We now use a pneumatic press to produce white wines in accordance with the hightest quality requirements, and twelve stainless-steel vats for the maceration and fermentation of grapes at controlled temperatures to produce red wines. The aging of the wine in barrels, all of which are made of French Allier oak, takes place in the ancient cellar, as does its final ageing in the bottle.
Nowadays the cellar is air conditioned to maintain a constatnt temperature and humidity which favour the optimum development of the must. The wood, our production techniques and, undoubtedly, the history impregnated in the cellar's walls help us to define the characteristics of each and every one of our wines.
