Recaredo, nine years of biodynamic viticulture

After nine years of practising biodynamic farming in Recaredo’s vineyards, we can see that our sparkling wines have an even more vital, expressive character, with a multitude of nuances and superb ageing potential. This rigorous approach and the respect for the ecosystem and the land it entails have clearly paid off, and thanks to our perfectly balanced vineyards we’re able to easily overcome the challenge posed by continuous rains in the spring and summer.

 

2014 vintage: An excellent harvest from an exceptional vineard

We begin harvesting Grenache grapes on 21 August and finish the last Xarel·lo vineyard on 16 September. A viticulture system that respects nature minimises the intervention necessary in the winery: the grapes harvested at Recaredo are extraordinarily well balanced in terms of must weight and acid level, so there’s no need to acidify or add sugar to the must. The fermentations were done using our own yeasts, isolated from our vineyards as part of our broad commitment to terroir: climate, varieties, land and man.
