Albet i Noya
This domain is the bio-pioneer of Spain. Josep-Maria Albet i Noya introduced this new concept in Spanish vineyards in 1979. Together with his brother Toni, they currently control over 100 hectares of ecological vineyards. The two brothers are not sitting still, because in the meantime they have projects in Rioja, Priorat and have started a search for forgotten old grape varieties.
In 25 years, they have succeeded in making better wines every year and continue to surprise the consumer. They are located in San Pau d'Ordal (Alt Penedès), a good 35 km south of Barcelona, and not so far from Sant Sadurni d'Anoia, the capital of the cava.
Josep-Maria is an oenologist who knows what he wants and goes for his goal rigorously. As a young man, he already resolutely opted for organic wine growing, against the then trends and large domains. Today he is still ahead of everything else; He has not used 100% new barrels for a long time because he wants the fruit to be given priority over wood use, a philosophy that would benefit more wine growers in Spain ... Meanwhile, he has also developed all kinds of techniques to make wine as natural as possible. with the addition of the minimum sulfur.
