Thanks to his efforts and hard work, Pares Balta farm turned into a huge model farm. To this were added two estates - "La Torreta" and "Els Pujols".
Now the family farm Pares Balta owns 5 the surrounding estates. The vineyards are located on this vast territory, and in the mountains Penedès, planted at different altitudes (from 150 to 750 meters above sea level), in a different microclimate in different soils. This policy allows you to receive a wide range of wines with individual characteristics.
