Recaredo’s Sparkling Wines are Aged with Cork Stoppers for 30 Months
Cava Recaredo is a family-run winery located in the Alt Penedès wine region, surrounded by vineyards and wood. The winery strictly follows an organic winemaking regime. Recaredo is well-known for its driest style sparkling wines aged with cork stoppers, keeping the herbal aromas intacted. The family’s organic commitment also resulted in the production of still white wines known as Can Credo.
Ninety-Six Years of Sheer Commitment Towards Viticulture & Winemaking
A beautiful tale was started in 1924 when Josep Mata Capellades built a small wine cellar under his home in the historic center of Sant Sadurní d’Anoia. He named the winery after his father’s name, Recaredo, who was a pot maker. In 1962, he produced the first batch of Reserva Particular de Recaredo, accompanied by his sons, Josep and Antoni. Over the years, the brothers continued to upgrade the winery’s functions. Later in 1990, the third generation began working in the cellar and vineyards, giving birth to new ideas.
