The typicity of the lands of Nulles, a privileged territory.

The typicity of the lands of Nulles, a privileged territory.

Nulles is a small rural village 15 kilometers from the coast of Tarragona. Bathed by the marinade and the Mediterranean character, it is a town with a wine-growing tradition that goes back to its foundation almost thousand years ago. Surrounded by vineyards until lost sight, Nulles writes with wine his story.

In the late nineteenth century, an event changed its fate, the arrival of the phylloxera that would sweep away the entire vineyard. But of this so serious moment of crisis, the union of its inhabitants arises in the agricultural Union of Nulles. A cooperative worker that would raise with effort a unique modernist winery that, one hundred years later, would continue being the mess and strength of a whole wine growing town.

A history of overcoming, an example of the history of agrarian Catalonia and specifically of the Camp de Tarragona. A landmark among others, to see the birth of Gaudí, Jujol or Cèsar Martinell (architect of the Wine Cathedrals), and the cooperative movement of its peoples, one of the most outstanding in all of Europe. The cooperative building of Nulles, by Cèsar Martinell, is one of the greatest exponents of the Modernist movement, not just for its beauty, but also for bringing together all the qualities necessary for the elaboration of wine.

Thus, the Nulles Wineries, with its renowned brand of wines and Cava Adernats, reaches its centennial in the moment of maximum wine and wine-making splendor. Consolidating year after year, as a reference in the Catalan territory within the denominations of Tarragona Origin and Cava and distinguished by singular and pioneering experiences of wine tourism in its majestic Wine Cathedral of 1917.

 The cava made especially for the centenary of the winery Adernars-Vinícola de Nulles.




 The wines, mainly white

Since the beginning of the cellar, the local white varieties of the area, Macabeu, Xarel·lo and Moscatel, are working mainly, which provide excellent results. But also, for the past three years, other varieties have worked with great success, such as Parellada and Chardonnay in white, and the Black Eyed Peas and Merlot in black.

The roots, which are fed on a clay soil and very rich lime but bathed by a few rains, give lower but very concentrated grape productions, which will give us the distinctive intensity of our wines. Fresh and marine aromas bring a unique salinity and uniqueness to the wines and cavas that are produced.
