Incredibly high definition. I called this "Flower Water" in the best way - direct and delightful with all the texture and presence you want for a lovely lunch!

Wine made from biodynamic grapes of Xarel.lo, the historical variety of our region, coming from DEMETER certified vineyards. Our biodynamic viticulture, the diversity of vineyards, and a very slow spontaneous fermentation make this marvellous wine, so subtle and complex.

Our story is fortunately very long. Can Valles de la Riera exists, since 1486, the year in which Jeroni Valles married the Elionor Guerau and founded our family, which, curiously, has maintained the surname Vallès to this day. Since 1486, there have been 22 generations, one after another, who have guarded and passed from parents to children this wonderful farm, with vines, olive trees, almond trees, pine forest and holm oaks. Our farm has been adapted to each time, has been enlarged and improved. Each generation has adapted to its time and has been bringing its own touch. There have been good times, especially the second half of the XIX, and very difficult times, of wars, of price drops of wine and grapes, of diseases. But, one way or another, complicated times have been going on, and we've been able to get to this day. We've always made wine in Can Vallès. The grapes were pressed into the winery, first with cage presses and with manual force, and then, as early as XX, with mechanical presses moved by pulleys and belts from a central electric motor. The wine fermented in underground tanks and vats (raised tanks), and a very fine and elegant wine was made. The wine was stored in cups and chestnut barrels until it was sold, in bulk, at the time when the sales prices were more favorable. Our wine had a reputation for quality wine, of being very good. This was due to the fact that, due to the situation of the farm and its height, most grapes were harvested quite late, at the end of September and during October, when the temperatures were already very cool. This drop in temperature allowed for slow fermentations that maintained the aromas very well and gave very fine and elegant wines, wines that in the nineteenth century were even exported to France. The fresh autumn temperature was the 'controlled temperature' of those times.
