  • Tarragona - The Wine Cathedral

    Description

    In the early 1900’s, after hundreds of years of family-owned winemaking and planting, the Nulles locals decide to pool their resources and expertise together to create the San Isidro Trade Union and build a superb winery called the Nulles Wine Cathedral.

    Learn about the history and accomplishments of Adernats Wines & Cava; a modernist winery since 1917. Located in Nulles, a territory where time passes slowly, the Wine Cathedral was built of stone and brick walls, containing wines and cavas gathered from the local wine farms. This structure was designed by the architect Cesar Martinell. The winery is the pride and emblem of a town that writes its history with wine.

    In Nulles the vineyard is also the basis of fine winemaking. They understand that only the best grapes will produce the best wines, which is why the work of the winemaker begins in the field with the farmers. Knowing the soil and the climate that characterizes them makes it possible to obtain unique wines; wines that are an expression of their region.
    The warm, temperate, typically Mediterranean climate work exceptionally well growing the native white varieties of the area, Macabeo, Xarel·lo and Moscatel. However, they have been working on other varieties such as Parellada and Chardonnay in white, and Ull de LLebre and Merlot in red with great success. The roots, which feed on a very rich clay and lime soil but bathed in few rains, give lower but more concentrated grape yields, which provide a distinctive intensity to the wines.

    This Yachting Land Adventure enables you to visit this remarkable place and enjoy a wine and food paring during the experience. Do not miss this opportunity to visit this modernist jewel through its unique wines and sensory experiences.
