Corpinnat territory

Wines born in the heart of Penedès

Recaredo’s family-owned vineyards are located in Corpinnat, a territory that winds its way through a varied landscape of forests, hills and ravines, including sites of great natural beauty, all dominated by the imposing presence of the mountain of Montserrat.


As grape growers, we’ve specialised in long-aged Brut Nature Corpinnat 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.

Recaredo’s vineyards

100% Family-owned vineyards

Xarel·lo: mirror of a territory

A commitment on traditional grape varieties

The Xarel·lo variety accounts for 60% of our vineyard area. It is a classic white grape variety that has its natural habitat in the Penedès region. It provides a fresh, vivid acidity, and gives long-aged sparkling wines a good structure.

As of 2014, all Recaredo’s vineyards are planted with indigenous varieties of the Penedès region, such as Xarel·lo, Macabeu, Parellada, Garnatxa and Monastrell.

To be as respectful as possible towards the natural environment and ensure the outstanding quality of our grapes, we always harvest our crop by hand.


The privilege of calcareous soils

Geology of the Corpinnat territory

Low production volumes of high quality

Recaredo’s family-owned vineyards are characterised by soils that are calcareous and in some cases highly so. The production volumes we obtain from these soils are quite low, but of high quality.

The soils are loamy: a balanced mix of sands and clays that facilitates drainage when there’s heavy rain and water retention during periods of drought.

The climate of Recaredo’s vineyards

100% Dry-grown viticulture

Temperature Mediterranean climate

As a result of the proximity of the Mediterranean, Recaredo’s vineyards experience mild winters and hot, dry summers. The area has a temperate Mediterranean climate, with an average annual rainfall of about 530 mm.

The lowest temperatures on our properties are recorded in January (the temperature can reach -2°C), and the hottest month is August (average temperature 24.2°C). Although the seasonal distribution of rainfall is very irregular in the Penedès region, the heaviest rains tend to come in the autumn, with winds from the east known locally as llevantades.
