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 sparkling wines with a distinctive character marked by long ageing. Their sparkling wines have forged a truly unique styledefined by elegance and subtlety. From the vineyards to the winery, to our cellars, at Recaredo every step is audited and certified by the independent verification body Bureau Veritas, a process that attests to our unique vocation as grape growers and winemakers. The hillsides around the Bitlles River are home to our family’s mosaic of vineyards, in the Alt Penedès region (Barcelona province).The Bitlles runs through a terrain broken by ravines, forests and hills.The mainly calcareous terrain is characterised by disjointed landscapes, dominated by the imposing presence of the mountain of Montserrat. The passage of time imbues Recaredo wines with an absolutely unique character. Their long-aged wines, which spend from a minimum of two and a half to over 30 years in the darkness of the cellars, make the winery an undisputed standard-bearer for professionalism, rigour and excellence. All Recaredo’s wines, without exception, are aged with natural cork stoppers, which are technically ideal for preserving the original character of a long-aged sparkling wine. Disgorgement is still done by true artisans, who expel the lees manually at the naturally cool temperature of the cellars. This traditional technique – performed only by experienced, expert hands – underscores our commitment to long-aged wines.
"Biodynamic, a step beyond organic farming. A step that brings us closer to life, to the constant pursuit of balance in the ecosystem, and to respect for biodiversity. A step that irrevocably makes man an artisan of the land.To move forward, we take a few steps back, observing and listening to nature to find answers. Without chemical fertilisers, without herbicides, without fungicides – only elements of natural origin. Because there can be no wines that capture the essence of the landscape unless we care for and respect the land itself."
