Appellation Guide: Alella DO (Catalonia, Spain)

Alella is one of the smaller DO areas in Catalonia and its wines are rarely discussed on the international stage.

There are only a handful of producers registered to produce wines in the DO and many of these choose to cultivate their fruit organically or even biodynamically.

Pansa Blanca and Garnacha Blanca are common white grapes in the area, while Syrah, Grenache Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Monastrell often represent the reds.
