Celler Rialla, quality, innovation and solidarity

Wines with body and soul. This is the motto of the Celler Rialla (smile in Catalan), a young winery from the DO Terra Alta that, in addition to making good wines, makes us more supportive of those who consume it. And it is that more and more consumers demand from all producers and processors, in addition to quality, other values ​​such as sustainability, respect for the environment and solidarity. Values ​​difficult to defend if the manufacturing company does not believe them and they are not part of its DNA. It is not the case of this family that has bet, without hesitation, to make a solidarity wine to help the La Nineta dels Ulls Foundation.

The winery

Celler Rialla is a young winery created in 2016 by Susanna and Roger (brothers) and their cousin Sergi, belonging to the Designation of Origin Terra Alta (Tarragona- Spain). The three partners work 80 Ha of vineyards of Ecological cultivation, they are passionate about wine and viticulture in general. The winery produces red, rosé and white wines of the Garnacha Blanca, Garnacha Tintorera, Garnacha Tinta and Garnacha Peluda varieties.

The Denomination of Origin Terra Alta is distinguished by the use of autochthonous varieties, where white and red Grenache are predominant. The soils are clay-calcareous poor in organic matter, with cold winters, low rainfall and high insolation. All this contributes a very marked character to their wines. Also the winds that converge in the area, the wind from the interior of the peninsula and the garbí from the coastal area have their influence on their wines. We find that they are full-bodied, mineral and with a highly integrated acidity.

In the winery, in addition, different activities of wine tourism to bring the consumer closer to the culture of wine. Outstanding among them is that of a wine «Al Meu Gust », where you will be the creator of your own wine with the varieties that you like the most of the DO

All of this makes Celler Rialla a reference to follow and a winery to take into account in this Catalan DO. It is, not only because of the quality of its wines, because of its passion and good work in its vineyards, but also because of knowing how to harmonize it with human values that make all their wines bigger in soul.
