Francesc Boronat cultivates his vines in his hometown of Nulles, southwest of Barcelona in the Tarragona region.

He is the creator of the Tanca Els Ulls estate, which translates to "close your eyes" in Catalan. A young and instinctive winemaker, he produces lively, fresh, complex, and precise wines. Captivated by the history and vision of his grandfather, also a winemaker, he decided to revive his most beautiful macabeu vines and his old cellar located beneath the family home.

He acquired a magnificent plot of Cartoixa de Marina from a neighboring village and also works with a plot of young Malvasia vines planted by his father after a trip to Sicily. The vines are planted in clay-limestone soils, surrounded by olive trees and the garrigue, and are constantly brushed by the sea breeze.

The Cartoixa de Marina vines are situated on a plot of concentrated clay-limestone soils rich in iron and stones, known as the "Coster de Bellavista."

The white CANETTA is a blend of Xarel-lo, Macabeu and Parellada. The grapes are destemmed, direct pressed, aged on lees for 6 months in stainless steel vats, and blended before bottling. Fruity and lively with a delicate hint of white flowers; very nice acidity and good balance.
