Recaredo & Celler Credo

RECAREDO & CELLER CREDO, Corpinnat & Alt Penedes – Biodynamic

The Recaredo Family are pioneers of biodynamic viticulture in Penedès and are characterized by their unwavering production of Millésime Brut Nature Corpinnat, with long lees ageing. They are committed to terroir to the point of obsession, it drives them to cultivate 100% family-owned vineyards planted only with traditional varieties from the region, specifically the Xarel·lo grape. They practice dry farming and all the grapes are harvested by hand. The yields are kepy low at around 6,000 kg/ha (maximum allowed by the regulations of use of Corpinnat: 12,000 kg/ha). In the winery Recaredo are exemplars of long-aged sparkling wines, with wines ranging from 30 months to more than 20 years in the case of the most special “enoteques”. Wines are riddled (and disgorged) by hand on traditional rack.

Celler Credo is the Recaredo family’s still white wine project primarily based on the Mediterranean variety Xarel·lo. Aged on the lees and macerated with the grape skin or stems using techniques learnt from their grandparents. The 15 hectares of vineyards are worked in a biodynamic way. For them, biodynamic agriculture is a way to align land, climate and people so that they can reveal their deeper nature.
