Winery Info/ Brand
Recaredo, with a history of almost a century, is located in Sant Sadurní d`Anoia (Barcelona). Its wines are essentially gastronomic, with a style defined by the elegance and subtlety that has captivated wine and gourmet critics: from The New York Times, to the prestigious La Revue de Vin de France, Le Monde or the influential magazines Forbes or The Wine Advocate by Robert Parker. The Recaredo family works only with their own dry-farmed vineyards, with a strong commitment to preserve biodiversity and balance in the ecosystem that has led them to be pioneers in biodynamic certification, a step beyond organics. Another of its principles is to make only Brut Nature long-aged Sparkling wines, that is, without any dossage or added sugar in the bottling process. All Recaredo sparkling wines are made by traditional method. Recaredo is working exclusively with historical varieties of the Penedès since 2014. In the case of Terrers, the coupage consists of the Xarelo, Macabeo and Parellada varieties, which are always hand-harvested, making a strict quality control of the bunches int the vineyard. Some vintages of Terrers incorporate Monastrell variety vinified in white. To enhance structure and elegance, part of the blend consists of wines that have been lightly aged in oak casks. Secondary fermentation and bottle ageing are done exclusively with natural cork stoppers, a sustainable, recyclable material from nature, ideal for retaining the original sense of Recaredo’s long-aged wines. Remuage (riddling) is done by hand on traditional racks and disgorging (the art of expelling the lees from the second bottle fermentation that then leaves the wine perfectly clear) is done manually without freezing the bottle neck by skilled masters – an artisanal, environmentally friendly process. The ageing on the lees of Recaredo Terrers is between 35 and 45 months.

They are accompanied by the Chardonnay grape, of French origin, which provides elegance and aroma. Villa Conchi, the cava brand of our group, is made in the heart of the Penedès. Its freshness and vibrant personality owe much to the harmony and purity of environment. In addition, its presentation has a lot to do with the true vocation of cava: celebration and pleasure."
