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 350 m of altitude, in l’Alt Penedès Montserratí. A unique young vineyard from Sumoll from 2012 called “Darrere la Torreta”, with limestone-loam soil, where the bedrock squeezes the fertile layer and is oriented northwest.
Winemaking : Made in a natural way, with a manual harvest in 250 kg containers. Entry with 30% rapa and all the skin to a stainless steel tub for maceration / infusion at low temperature. After a few days the spontaneous fermentation begins, and without moving the hat or stirring the wine, the fermentation progresses. Ageing inside the tub until spring, where it is pressed and transfered to the clay jug, for its final ageing for about a year.
Bottle 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.
