‘Aloers’ was the name given to farmers in the Middle Ages who owned the land that they cultivated. They were free of any duty to pay rent or render service.
The white wine Aloers is made exclusively with grapes from vineyards owned by Celler Credo in the county of Alt Penedès (Barcelona). All of the vineyards have been cultivated in accordance with the principles of organic, biodynamic agriculture.
In Celler Credo’s vineyards we let plant cover grow spontaneously between the vines. This cover plays a crucial role, loosening the soil, regulating water retention and drainage (essential in the dry farming system we practise), and helping to foster biodiversity and maintain a balance in the vineyard ecosystem. Natural treatments based on medicinal plants (phytotherapy) are applied to the vines to control the presence of fungus and strengthen the vine’s defences in a natural way.
All Celler Credo grapes are harvested by hand to ensure the excellent quality of the fruit. All our wines are produced and bottled on the property.
Aloers is made by allowing the must to macerate for a few hours with the stems and then leaving the wine on the lees for approximately two months. At Celler Credo we produce limited volumes in our vineyards and keep a close eye on maturation. This approach allows us to achieve a fresh and natural acidity. Aloers offers the freshest, most genuine expression of the Mediterranean Xarel·lo grown on calcareous soils. Celler Credo’s team wants to ensure a wine of great vivacity that can have a long life in the bottle. This wine may display completely natural sediments.
Celler Credo is the first biodynamic winemaker for DO Penedès.
