About Reserva Particular de Recaredo
In 1962 Josep Mata Capellades, in close collaboration with his sons Josep and Antoni, created the Reserva Particular de Recaredo with the original idea of conveying the delicateness and the subtle complexity of a long-aged wine without sacrificing freshness and the most authentic expression of time.
Reserva Particular is made using grapes from a selection of old vineyards on three Recaredo estates—Pedra Blanca, Can Romeu and Can Rossell de la Serra circumscribed by the Anoia River and the Salada, Can Bautista and Lavernó gullies. The soils are highly calcareous and have a silt-loam texture.
Since 1962, three generations of the Recaredo family have cultivated the character of Reserva Particular, creating a unique style based on freshness and the authentic expression of time. Reserva Particular is, without doubt, a tribute to the time and to the Corpinnat territory.
