For almost a century, Recaredo has maintained a firm commitment to produce terroir wines that reflect the landscapes of the Alt Penedès (Barcelona) as honestly and transparently as possible. They make only vintage Brut Nature Cavas with a distinctive character marked by long ageing. Recaredo's wines are both organic and biodynamic; they let plant cover grow spontaneously between the vines. This cover crop plays a crucial role, fostering biodiversity, loosening the soil, and regulating water retention and drainage (essential in the dry farming system practised).
"As grape growers and winemakers, we’ve specialised in long-aged Brut Nature sparkling wines, entering into a tacit agreement with the land and tradition, a pact under which we seek to articulate truly honest stories, to express the distinctive features of the landscape through wines, vintage after vintage."
This wine is made using 36% Xarel·lo, 64% Macabeo.
