Winery Info/ Brand
For almost a century, Recaredo had always maintained a commitment to producing quality sparkling wine that is deeply traditional, handcrafted, and reflects the climate and land of Alt Penedès as honestly as possible. Founded in 1924, Recaredo is located west of Barcelona in Sant Sadurni d’Anoia, with some sections in the cellar existing in their original form over 80 years old. The third generation, Ton Mata, manages this estate and the 65ha in the calcareous terroir of the Bitlles Valley. Vineyards are planted mainly with Xarel-lo, Macabeu, Parellada, and others. Vines range from 10 – 80 years in age. A strict organic viticulture regime is followed and is, and one of the first, certified biodynamic producers in Penedès. Methods in the cellar are detail-oriented, with the Xarel-lo grape used in high proportions and the use of old oak barrels for ferments and aging. The second fermentation and lees aging happens in bottles with natural cork stoppers, zero dosage, only native yeast use, manual disgorging without freezing, vintage dating, and the list goes on. All of the wines are deeply expressive, finely etched and startlingly complex.
Region Info/ Origin
Sant Sadurní d’Anoia is indisputably the Capital of Cava, with over eighty local Cava wineries making this product. Since the late 18th century, vine-growing and winemaking have been the town's main occupation. From the start of the production of sparkling wine in the Penedès, Sant Sadurní was a prime model of its exploitation and refinement, setting down the roots of a tradition that reaches us today witho ver a hundred and fifty municipalities making up the Cava Region, which is the delimited production area for the Cava Designation of Origin (DO).
