Celler la Muntanya is completely different from all our other winemakers. They’re not a family vineyard handed down from generation to generation. Nor are they a small, single producer who has grown successful by making great wine. Instead, Celler la Muntanya is a Microvineyard.
Celler la Muntanya is the fulcrum for a community of winemakers surrounding the village of Muro de Alcoi near Alicante. These tiny vineyards and smallholdings are owned individually, but managed and vinified as an ensemble through Celler la Muntanya. Together, the winemakers behind Celler la Muntanya work to recover derelict vineyards, preserve local grape varietals, and sustain the local winemaking culture. Celler la Muntanya is sponsored by the Slow Food movement’s Valencia chapter and has a fourfold ambition: to be environmentally, socially, culturally, and economically profitable.
At Wines Direct, we admire and appreciate the holistic motivation behind Celler la Muntanya, but what we appreciate the most is their wine - we wouldn’t be introducing you to them if they didn’t produce fantastic wine. Celler la Muntanya brings people get together to take pride in where they’re from and to make the highest quality wine they can. And we think the results are fantastic.
