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".

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 a wide range of wines with individual characteristics. The farm has its own flock of sheep, which makes it possible to obtain organic fertilizer to the soil, and hives to maintain pollination. The close proximity of the Mediterranean Sea also affects the quality of the grapes for the better. Since 2000, the management was taken over by grandchildren Joan Hill, who brought the company new and fresh ideas, while expressing respect for its traditions and protecting the rich heritage they inherited from their ancestors winemakers.
