Recaredo, Celler Credo and Granollers Natural Science Museum

Recaredo, Celler Credo and the Granollers Natural Science Museum have won the EMAS 2023 Award for “Best Tandem Project”, for the joint work they have been carrying out for 10 years with the aim of investigating the importance of living beings in the Penedès region, supporting the research work and raising awareness of the project through wines made at Celler Credo.

The EMAS Catalunya Awards are a Catalan initiative organised by the EMAS Club (a private non-profit association of companies and organisations committed to environmental improvement), with the support of the Catalan Ministry of Climate Action, Food and Rural Agenda, that aim to support improvement of the environmental management system.

The awards ceremony was held on Thursday 23 November in the Auditorium of the Administrative District of the Government of Catalonia in Barcelona, and was hosted by Gemma Puig, the presenter of several weather programmes on TV3 and Catalunya Ràdio. The event was also attended by the Minister for Climate Action, Food and Rural Agenda, David Mascort, and the president of the EMAS Club, Marta Escamilla, who presented the award, and other officials from the Ministry of Climate Action, Food and Rural Agenda.

A decade of working together to conserve biodiversity

In 2013, Recaredo, Celler Credo and the Granollers Natural Science Museum began a collaboration that has now been running for more than ten years. The initiative involved the launch of two studies: ratpenats.org, which aims to learn about the distribution, ecology and role of bats as efficient natural insectivores; and a research project within the framework of the Catalan Butterfly Monitoring Scheme (CBMS), which for more than 30 years has focused on gathering information about butterfly populations by conducting visual counts of adult specimens at points throughout Catalonia. The project has made it possible to design the Catalan Living Planet Index.

“In our society, which is very much based on smoke and mirrors, we should value relationships like the one between Celler Credo and the BiBio research group. The support provided by the winery and others has made it possible to set up a bat and butterfly monitoring network that’s unique in Europe,” said Carles Flaquer, general coordinator and head of external relations at the Granollers Natural Science Museum.

“At Recaredo and Celler Credo we believe the best way to make progress and get the best results is by combining talents and through honest collaboration with different actors with whom we share values and ideals. We’re all proud to be recognised by an institution like the EMAS Club for our role in environmental conservation,” says Ferran Junoy, general manager of Celler Credo and Recaredo.

Collaborative projects give rise to Celler Credo’s Ratpenat and Volaina wines

Celler Credo’s philosophy is to work the land and create wines based on an approach that sees vineyard management as a relationship of equality between man and nature, based on respect and understanding. The two collaborations that the winery has participated in have led to the creation of two wines that form part of Celler Credo’s Vida collection: Ratpenat (100% Macabeu) was created in 2013 as part of the partnership between the winery and the research group, aimed at supporting bat conservation in the vineyard ecosystem; and Volaina (100% Parellada) grew out of the study focusing on the role of butterflies as bio-indicators of landscape quality.
