A v special bottle! This is a crazy unique blend of seven (YES, SEVEN!) different grape varieties, Trepat, Sumoll, Garrut, Queixal de Llop, Ull de Perdiu, Garnacha, and Samsó. A seriously dangerous bottle that becomes even more drinkable when lightly chilled. The VN named after a style of wine called vinel-lo, a low alcohol table wine made with grape pomace. Juicy, fruity and fresh, an explosion of aromas on the nose! On the palate, it is fluid and long. Tangy, bright, and earthy.

The harvest is carried out by hand. At the winery, the grapes macerate with the stems and after the stomping, the musts ferment one after the other. They are added subsequently, extending the wine's fermentation as a whole. Native yeasts are used in the fermentation. The malolactic fermentation is spontaneous, with native bacteria. Before it is bottled, is left to stand for 7 months in stainless steel deposits, without added sulphur dioxide. 

Partida Creus is a small traditional winery that produces a very limited quantity of high-end very original wines made with organically grown grapes. The initiative was started in 2007 by a couple of Italian architects from the Piedmont region, Antonella Gerosa and Massimo Marchiori, who, seeking a complete reversal in their lives, relocated to the quiet village of Bonastre. There they refurbished an old agricultural building, converting it into a cellar, a project carried out with recycled materials and solid structures.
