About Celler Finca Parera: Fourth generation farmers since 1892, organic winegrowers since 1999 and biodynamic winemakers since 2013. Jordi Parera and Ruben Parera take care of different small plots of vineyard, along with other ancient cultures cherries, almonds, olives and vegetables garden. All with a small production of honey from their own bees.
Finca Parera is located in the upper Penedes region Penedès Montserratí in the village of Sant Llorenç d’Hortons, a historic area of quality Xarel·lo production which is characterised by its calcareous clay soils. Rubén converted his family’s 10h estate from organic to biodynamic farming, continuing the natural process into the cellar while applying the same practice to their cherries, almonds, olives, and vegetables, obtaining the rather grueling Demeter certification on their first visit.
Devoted to the green cover, compost and ancestral practices, they try to express the full potential of their terroir, foster the landscape, take care of the soil and close vital circles.
Vineyard : Sant Llorenç d’Hortons around 235 m of altitude, in l’Alt Penedès Montserratí. Adult vines from the “L’Hort”, “L’Ull de Llebre” and “Les Prunes” plots.
Winemaking : Produced in a natural way, with a manual harvest in a 250 kg container. Grape entry into cement cups with skins and without rapa. Maceration / Infusion at controlled temperature. When a few days have passed, the alcoholic fermentation starts with wild yeasts. Decantation by gravity of the flower wine, the rest of the skins to press for other wines. Aging during the winter to clean the wines statically, and bottling by gravity and descending moon.
Bottled without any intervention or addition, in a descending moon.
Precipitations and cloudy appearance may appear, denoting respectful processing and are a good sign of authenticity.
Description: 40% Sumoll and a coupage of d’Ull de Llebre, Garnatxa Negre, Monastrell, Syrah. The cool sea breezes and light-handed winemaking make the Fosc Tinto brim with fresh red fruit. There is a touch of earth on the palate. This will drink nicely with a slight chill.
