Parés Baltà is a family owned winery in the Penedès region with traditions that goes back to 1790.
We produce wines and cavas of high quality and the grapes come from our own vineyards - five estates, situated around the winery and in the mountains of Penedés. The altitude varies from 170 to 750 meters and offers a diverse mixture of soils and microclimates that gives a special personality to our wines.
The origin of Parés Baltà goes all the way back to the 18th century. In 1790 the first vines were planted on the estate that now surrounds the winery. Today however, more than 200 years later, almost everything is different.
The taking over of the winery in 1978 by Mr Joan Cusiné Hill, born in 1917 in Bellvei del Penedés, and the addition of the exemplary estates “La Torreta” and “Els Pujols” mark the beginning of the Parés Baltà of today. Mr Joan Cusiné Hill comes from a family of vine growers and, already from the age of seven, he helped his father to cultivate the vineyards.
His son Joan Cusine Cusine started to manage Pares Balta in the eighties and released its first still white wine, “Blanc de Pacs” which is still produced today. At the end of the eighties the first red wine from the company was produced, and since then he has enthusiastically been attempting anything that could raise the quality of the wines.
Since 2000 the management is in the hands of the two grandsons, Joan and Josep Cusiné Carol. They have brought new and fresh ideas into the company, but also shown respect for its tradition and guarded the heritage. The wives of Joan and Josep, Maria Elena Jimenez and Marta Casas are the winemakers and oenologists. They have continued to develop new wines and increased the focus on quality.
Today, Parés Baltà produces a wide range of high quality wines and cavas that has been acclaimed both nationally and internationally. Always keeping quality in view, the aim is to produce some of the best and most interesting wines in the world.
The Parés Baltà wines are made from grapes grown on our own five estates and are cultivated in an ecological way. The estates have a great variety of microclimates, a mosaic of different soils, and are suitable for different grape varieties.
