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 300 m high, in the Alt Penedès Montserratí. Vineyard of “Las Abejas”.
Winemaking : This ancestral is made in a natural way, with the must at the end of fermentation (density controls and residual sugars G / F) from each year’s Chardonnay batch. “We bleed the must / wine that is still fermenting into a stainless steel vat to lower the temperature and thus slow down the yeasts and precipitate a part of the more cloudy part of the must / wine by static cold.
We bottle without any intervention or addition, in bottles that withstand the pressure to continue the wild fermentation inside them, and we let it rest all autumn, winter and part of the following spring, slaughtering hot on a descending moon in April.” Reuben Parera
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.
