Celler Batlliu de Sort
Celler Batlliu de Sort produces quality wines in the mountains in Sort, Pallars Sobirà – Pyrenees. The winery is located in gently rolling meadows, surrounded by forests of oak and maple trees at the foot of the Parc Nacional d’Aigüestortes Sant Maurici and the Parc Natural de l’Alt Pirineu, and has a bird’s eye view of Sort and the Noguera Pallaresa river which crosses the valley from north to south. The vines are planted at an altitude of 800m. – 1000m. and are surrounded by mountains that reach 2900m. high. The grape varieties are mainly Pinot Noir, Riesling and Viognier, but there are also some small experimental plantations of other grapes.
They work with complete respect for the environment, using only those products allowed in organic farming, but the wines, as a matter of philosophy, are not certificated. The harvest is done manually and the fermentation and aging of wines take place in stainless steel tanks with the minimum intervention and with (or occasionally without) extremely low levels of sulphur, to enable them to produce wines that represent the most of the area where they are conceived.
