Alta Alella Mirgin celebrates 23 harvests with a unique sensorial experience


On June 10, we celebrated 23 vintages with a unique event that promotes the heritage of time, the natural commitment and the richness of Alella’s terroir. Located in the heart of the Cordillera de Marina Natural Park, amongst vineyards and with spectacular views of the Mediterranean Sea, various wine figures, sommeliers and critics were able to enjoy short cinematographic films, paired with original plates and wines and cavas from the ‘library’ of the Pujol-Busquets Guillén family, especially selected for the occasion.

Wines and cavas from exceptional vintages

The night’s protagonists were the wines and cavas from old vintages that had rested patiently until now in the family’s ‘library’ and have been uncorked exclusively for the celebration. Some with up to 21 years of ageing, these are wines to which time has conferred complexity and elegance, while maintaining a surprising freshness thanks to the particularities of the Alella area’s terroir. The vineyards grow in Sauló, a sandy granitic soil that gives the wines an exceptional natural acidity, and less than 2 km from the Mediterranean sea.

  • Alta Alella 10, 2012: A collectible cava with a minimum of 10 years ageing, awarded as the best cava for 3 years in a row by the Peñín Guide (97/100 points), best sparkling wine by Vivir el vino (99/ 100 points), amongst other distinctions.
  • Aus Bruant, 2018: Made with Pansa Blanca and pioneer in its category, it was the first cava without sulfites ever made, back in 2006.
  • Alta Alella Cau d’en Genís, 2017 (Magnum): Made in cement egg (Oeuf de Beaune), it represents the traditional Pansa Blanca variety at its best. It is fresh, mineral and elegant.
  • Alta Alella Lanius, 2003: The essence of Alella expressed through Chardonnay ripeness and wood fermentation.
  • Alta Alella Orbus, 2003: Mediterranean Syrah with 14 months of barrel ageing, expressing the freshness of the land by the sea. It is made only in cool vintages, with a climate more typical of continental areas.
  • Alta Alella Dolç Mataró, 2010: Emblematic sweet wine from the winery, made with the traditional Mataró grape variety. It is listed in some of the best restaurants in the world.

A unique and sensorial experience

VINEMA is an original idea from Mireia Pujol-Busquets and documentary filmmaker Pau Sanclemente, which combines wine, gastronomy and cinema. An innovative approach that emphasizes local and sustainable products, seeking an emotional and sensorial impact on the audience. A demonstration of our passion for creating unforgettable moments and a new way of understanding and enjoying wine, beyond the glass. To innovate without losing sight of our roots and respect for the environment.

On this occasion, an inflatable screen powered by photovoltaic solar energy from Ecocinema, a production company that uses film as a communication tool and positive social impact, was installed on the winery’s terrace. Works by renowned filmmakers such as Neus Ballús with ‘Blow!’, nominated for the Gaudí and Goya awards, Javier Barbero Montes with ‘Siembra’ or Joan Bover with ‘Dear Michael’ were projected. Each of them, six in total, was paired with an original plate by chef Miquel Antoja, inspired by the different short films, and one of Alta Alella’s wines. The idea with this pairing is to ‘eat and watch the wine’, while you drink it. A 360º experience that activates all the senses and in which everything is connected.
