Red wine

Bell Cros outside of Marça, close to the small town of Falset in DO Montsant is a vineyard that is growing. Acquisitions of neighbouring vineyards have increased the size of Bell Cros to over 25 hectares, with 16 hectares of grapevines that will produce some 50,000 bottles a year. The vineyard and the winery are officially EU-organic certified. From vintage 2023 onwards all Bell Cros wines will carry the EU-organic logo, the green leaf. The wines are Vegan certified as well.

El Camí / 2021

El Camí is a small winding dirt road that passes through the vineyard of Bell Cros. It was of great importance locally during the Spanish Civil War, 1936-39, when wine production in Spain almost stopped. Two houses (masias) still standing beside the road today played important roles during the war as a hospital and an eatery.
