Pares Balta Winery takes family owned and operated to the next level. The Cusine family’s history goes back to 1790, when the first vines were planted around the existing winery building. Today, brothers Joan and Josep Cusine run the operation as they have since they took over from their father, Joan, in 2000. But not only do they have the dynamic of siblings working every day together, the men took their passion for wine one step further with each marrying an oenologist (winemaker). Now sister in laws, Marta Casas and Maria Elena Jimenez are the winemakers at Pares Balta. What has followed since the arrival of the foursome is a family passion for producing organic and biodynamic wines coming from their stunning estate in Penedés, Spain.
Parés Baltá has a special affinity for the Catalan native variety of Garnatxa, and their Garnaxta extends from lands at sea level, all the way to 700 meters above the winery. Their affinity gives way to an amazing harmony amongst the foursome. The family prides themselves on the fact that they not only are certified organic, but they have been certified biodynamic by the Demeter Biodynamic Trade Association. Their emphasis on biodynamic principles is not about generating a marketing plan, or to increase revenues, but it’s because the family believes in living in harmony with what nature provides.
