Dry white wine produced primarily with Pansa Blanca, a grape variety typical of the DO Alella. Viognier, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc are used in the blend to increase the aromatic complexity and the structure of the wine. Harvest begins after having checked the ripening stage of the grapes day by day until each variety reaches the optimal ripeness. The varieties are fermented separately using a combination of wood barrels and stainless steel tanks. Once fermentation is complete the wines are blended, slightly fined, stabilized and then bottled unfiltered.

Red wine produced principally from Syrah which is grown on southeast facing terraces and slopes upon the characteristic "sauló" soil of D.O. Alella. The large variation in temperature from night to day allows for ideal ripeness of the skins. After de-stemming, the grapes are moved to stainless steel tanks to begin a long maceration. Macerations are done using a technique know as submerged skins to keep the skins in contact with the must allowing optimal extraction of color and tannins from the skin while diminishing volatile acidity in the final product. The wine is transferred to French Allier oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and is then aged for 14 months. To respect the characteristics and potential of the wine, it is bottled without filtration or stabilization.

After a careful and light pressing the wine is aged in French oak barrels. It is then bottled unfiltered after a mild process of stabilization.
