Parés Baltà presents its first 100% natural wine,  Silvestris a wine from the Gratavinum Cellar that the Cusiné family has in the DOQ Priorat.

Silvestris  is the result of a 85% coupaje Grenache and 15% cabernet sauvignon. It comes from young vineyards around the village of Gratallops receiving ony rain water irrigation and, since it was planted, is not being treated with chemicals. This young vineyard begins to show the potential of the unique terroir that has the Priorat minerality getting to be very present in wine.

Fruit of a unique environment that captures any nature lover and wine lover alike.

Silvestris-gratavinum-natural-redSILVESTRIS 2011 is a red that has had a rapid fermentation, both alcoholic – with wild yeasts at a temperature of 25th-and malolactic. Later it has rested for 8 months in new French oak barrels. Bottling, too fast, was made in 15 days so minimizing the risk of prolonged preservation on deposit. The resulting SO2 official analytical wine is 7 mg / l, which is a natural product produced by yeast during fermentation because the wine has added no SO2 at no time during the vinification.
GRATAVINUM, the magic of Priorat. In the wild and rugged landscape of the Priorat performed a dramatic struggle for survival of the vine. A unique atmosphere that captures any lover
nature and wine. In the year 2003, Joan and Josep Cusine, their wives Ma Elena Jimenez and Marta Casas (Peer winemakers Balta) and winemaker Jordi Fernandez, decided to start their adventure in the national Priorat. Thus Gratavinum, contraction of Gratallops (population where found the winery) and Vinum wine in latin, makes a nod to history and to the Romans who introduced the cultivation of the vine in the region centuries ago.
