Producer Profile

Els Vinyerons

Els Vinyerons Vins Naturals, spearheaded by Alex Ruiz, emerges as a testament to organic winemaking with a touch of poetry. Originating from a desire to create artisanal wines from fully organic vines, Alex, hailing from a family renowned for Cava production, found inspiration in Amós Bañeres. Bañeres, known for his limited-production wines, sought to make his craft more accessible through this collaboration. The resulting wines, crafted sans soufre, showcase the true essence of grape, soil, and climate, embodying a clean and easy-drinking character. Drawing from childhood memories shared by Alex's grandfather, the wines are aptly named after insects found in organic vineyards, adding a touch of nostalgia and whimsy to each bottle.

Where The Wines Come From


In the sun-kissed region of Penedès, nestled in Catalonia, Spain, a growing community of winemakers is embracing the principles of natural winemaking with passion and dedication. Here, amidst the rolling hills and Mediterranean breezes, vintners like Maria Solé and Jordi Torres are leading the charge, cultivating vineyards with organic and biodynamic practices to produce grapes of exceptional quality and character. In the cellar, they practice minimal intervention, allowing the grapes to ferment with native yeasts and refraining from additives, fining, or filtration. The result is a portfolio of vibrant and expressive wines that capture the true essence of Penedès—wines that reflect the region's terroir, history, and spirit with every sip, offering a taste of Catalonia's natural wine revolution.
