Quality sparkling wines have been part of the DO Penedès since its beginnings, although always in much smaller quantities than still wines. However, since 2013 a number of new producers have joined the DO increasing the weight of these wines inside the DO Penedès.
In 2014 these wines are given the brand name of Clàssic Penedès, and a new line of regulations is drawn up to better define the product.
Clàssic Penedès follows the traditional and ancestral method for elaborating quality sparkling wines used around the world. It stands out in three principal areas:
With this requirement, the DO Penedès became the first 100% organic sparkling wine appellation in the world.
Clàssic Penedès sparkling wines carry the guarantee of an agriculture that respects its environment, using traditional farming methods and 100% organic treatments, making the DO Penedès the appellation that heads both quantitatively and qualitatively the ranking of organic production in Catalonia and the whole of Spain.
One of the key strengths of Clàssic Penedès is the territorial guarantee that comes with being part of the DO Penedès.
It is a product with a clear identity, whose production is limited strictly to the DO Penedès, promoting above all the ancestral and indigenous varieties of this area.
Strictly following the traditional and ancestral methods, with the objective of consolidating Clàssic Penedès among the best sparkling wines in the world, our producers must hold Clàssic Penedès wines for at least 15 months in the cellar.
This effectively makes all Clàssic Penedès wines Reservas.
