Litrona is a house label from importer Selections de la Viña. "Litrona is our ode to the liter format which we heavily consumed during our college years in Spain, except back then it was liters of beer. Like many of the wines we import, Litrona is focused on drinkability which is why 750ml just wasn’t gonna cut it. Thoughtful farming and minimal intervention winemaking remain the pillars of the brand where native grape varieties from each region are the main protagonist."
We love it with… 🌭🍕🐷
Grape: 100% Sumoll
Region: Penedes, Catalonia, Spain
Vinification: Sumoll planted back in 1939, grown organically and selected from parcels within 10ha of estate vineyards on calcareous sand at 200m in elevation. Hand-harvested with 15 days of skin maceration (stems included). Spontaneous fermentation with native yeasts happens in very old foudre and amphora for 1.5 years after harvest before being blended together and bottled unfined, unfiltered, with zero SO2 (which is a key factor to the whole Litrona wine project!).
