Building of the new cellar

Albet y Noya increases capacity by 20% with the building of a new 500m2 cellar that holds 220.000 more litres.

The new cellar is located in the main estate of Can Vendrell, in the municipality of St.Pau de Ordal.

This new area is for the fermentation of red wines and there is a special area for top range red wines. To elaborate these wines 4 cement deposits of 6000 litres have been incorporated. These latest generation French tanks incorporate a new technology that will allow the wines to breath better, expressing and boosting the fruit and, at the same time, making them smoother. This type of deposit is specially meant for top range red wines.

Before the building of this new area there was what we called the Pallissa in this part of the Can Vendrell estate, a room where there were some wine barrels for crianza, and for this reason the new cellar will surely keep this name; and it will be called the new Pallissa cellar, therefore making a set of spaces with the cellar from 1925 and the new cellar of Xapallà finished in 2004.
