Amos Baneres - Els Vinyerons
Els Vinyerons is a project of Amós Bañeres Merinero & Alex Ruiz Masachs from Penedès in Spain. Alex Masachs, famous for his cavas and Amos, an old pharmacist that had enough of his job and started to produce very special wines on his old family vineyards. The two winemakers believe that the only way to make wine is in the most natural way. Without using herbicides, pesticides or any enologic products in the winemaking process. Natural wine with local grape varieties, indigeous yeasts and no intervention or added sulphites. No filtration or stabilization. Wine made in the vineyard. They only select those grapes that are representing the perfect essence of the terroir and landscape, what shows their passion for making good wines and to produce low quantities of great, natural wine from Penedès.
Amós Bañeres owns a small plot of 5,5 hectare vineyards in Vilafranca del Penedès where he produces natural wines with very limited intervention. Every wine has it's unique character, expressing the small plot of where it comes from. Mainly planted is Xarel-lo, Macabeu, Parellada but also some Garnatxa and Tempranillo from which he makes his Saltamarti wine. He cares a lot about stable, natural wines without additives and produces very limited quantities with the use of amphoras and old barrels. He started producing in 2011.
The soil of the vineyards from Amós vary from limestone, calcareous clay and sand on a small hill south of Vilafranca del Penedès.
