Coll de la Sitja
A real thirst quencher, this oak-aged white wine. Bursting with diverse flavours. Fresh and at the same time round and creamy. Even tastier with every sip, as we are used to from the men of L'Apical. For them it all started 8 years ago with this Coll de la Sitja. Today their wines can be found in many restaurants in Barcelona.

Why we love this wine
Einzelgänger in this bottle is the Macabeu, which lends itself perfectly to a high-quality white wine. The grape can also take a beating. It doesn't budge from the Catalan heat or drought. The Coll de Sitja uses clones from vineyards sown in 1967. This sparkling wine matured for 4 months in French oak barrels and rested for a year in the bottle. Wine enthusiasts Sergi and Martí started their adventure with it and are now hard at work conquering the restaurant scene in Barcelona, with their modern style of light bodied gourmet wines.
What makes this winery so special
L'Apical is a relatively young winery, founded in 2012. Sergi Sevillano and Martí Giralt studied oenology and viticulture together, but first walked their separate path. Sergi became a sommelier and technician in a number of prestigious restaurants and wine shops. Martí had been surrounded by vineyards all his life. Coming from a family with more than 40 years of experience between the grapes. After rediscovering each other, they started l'Apical: a modern winery in Penedès where honest wine is made without too much intervention and with small productions.
Job's Tasting Notes
The Coll de la Sitja turns bright yellow, with the occasional sparkle of gold. Fresh aromas of green apple and green plum are unmistakable. And don't be surprised by a hint of fennel or cream here and there. Refreshing, but also pleasantly round and creamy in the mouth. A juicy thirst quencher with a medium body that is (a little too) easy to drink.
