Castillo Perelada Brut Reserva CavaDesignation of Origin: Cava, a sparkling wine which is made following the traditional method, has fully established its identity in markets abroad in the last thirty years. Native grapes, a warm climate and the growing country all contribute to its distinctive character. Cava's name derives from the Spanish word for an underground cellar, which became the term for the production method. Varietals: Macabeo (40%), Xarel·lo (30%), Parellada (30%).
Winemaking: Temperature controlled fermentation off the skins.
Ageing: The second fermentation takes place in the bottle, following the traditional method. It stays in the cellar for about fifteen months before disgorging.

Wine has been made at the Castillo Perelada since the Middle Ages, as shown in several documents and parchments from the period to be found in the library. When Miguel Mateu bought this ensemble of monuments in 1923, one of his primary objectives was to revitalize the wine producing tradition, a tradition that is more alive than ever these days and which has incorporated the most modern technology to create wines that make full use of the nuances of the soils and vines of the Empordà.
El Empordà is a small area where there is a variety of soils found in few other places in the world. Slate slopes, Sandy valleys. Fluvial sediment, clay-silt, gravel soils… Lands that have borne witness to how different civilizations cultivated the art of wine. The heterogeneity of the land on which the vines grow allows the Castillo Perelada to obtain grapes with a wide range of nuances. View Castillo Perelada Website >>
