Agusti Torello gained his first experience of winemaking at the age of 14, while he was working in his uncle’s cellar. That was in 1949, and since then Torelló has been fashioning traditional Cavas at his winery in Sant Sadurni d’Anoia in the Penedès. Mata, the son of a tailor and musician, created the estate with the goal of making the best Cava in the zone. In order to achieve the complexity they seek, Torelló Mata makes Cava with grapes from a variety of districts throughout the zone and age the wines for a minimum of two years. Torelló Mata uses only fruit from vines that are a minimum of 30 years old. They have expanded their estate’s holdings to 35ha of organic vineyards and also buy fruit from growers with whom they’ve been working with for more than 25 years. Their range of Cavas includes dry and very dry, low dosage styles, focusing solely on the indigenous varieties of the area. While their neighbors may have been tempted to include ever increasing quantities of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir (permitted under the D.O guidelines) this winery prefers to craft regionally expressive Cava that reflects the unique terroir of Penedès. Today winemaking duties are carried out by son Alex Torelló Mata (pictured).
We are dedicated to craft wine. Real wine produced by real people in limited quantity, from the new generation of natural winemakers to the classic high-end Burgundians. Sorry, no industrial wine here!
We are not just another Direct-to-Consumer website. Actually, we don't sell directly to consumers at all, as we believe selling wine is an art. We don't want to replace it, rather just make it easier, so you can focus on the art.
We believe the trade should be as fluid as wine. Processes, information and transactions should flow as a fine wine, in and out of a Zalto glass. That's where a Digital Platform can help.
For the wine market to be healthy, firstly it must take care of the producers. We believe that the trade should be fair and transparent, across all channels, from the producer to the final consumer.
