VN Tinto is a deliberately lower alcohol red blend, made in the signature Partida Creus style. Unabashed in its fruit expression, acid and earthy tang, it’s super lo-fi, and oh-so real.
Partida Creus are one of the most impressive natural producers in Spain. The winery was founded by Massimo Marchiori and Antonella Gerona, an Italian couple from Piedmont. Both architects who initially moved to Barcelona before settling in the Massís de Bonastre (Baix Penedés). Their focus is on organic viticulture and minimal intervention winemaking, and their vineyard holdings are mostly old vines of indigenous varieties.
