Vineyard (viticulture)

Alella is characterized by the sandy texture soil called sauló. It is a very poor in nutrients soil, with low water retention and a moderate pH. Density is 3,700 vines/Ha distance between rows of 2.2 × 1.2 meters between vines. Gobelet form is used for the older vines, while new plantations are trellised using the cordon royat system. Vines are pruned short. Grapes come from the more than 50 years vineyards of Pansa blanca of Martorelles and Santa Maria de Martorelles.
