Bodegas Sumarroca, DO Penedès

New to the Alliance Wine Portfolio in 2013 is a highly regarded Cava producer from Penedès

Hailing from Penedes, the home of Cava, Bodegas Sumarroca makes excellent sparklers that belie the price.

Generations of the Sumarocca family have devoted themselves to making Cava. Combining their passion for the land and tenacity in cultivating vines their Cava'´s have bags of personality and character. 

Carlos Sumarroca, the owner, is one of Spain's most important and awarded agriculturists and together with his wife Nuria bought the 15th century estate in 1982. The enterprising couple set about establishing one of the largest estate-only grown vineyard Cava producers in Spain. They practice sustainable farming, harvest at night and only use only free-run juice - selling off the pressed juice to other bodegas. Their winery is terraced along the hillside so that all movement of wine is gravity fed.

The whites are blends of the traditional Cava varietals of Macabeo, Xarello, and Perellada with a small amount of Chardonnay, while their Rosado´s are made from Pinot Noir. All are aged for at least 22months before release.

Their top wine Nuria, is produced in limited quantities and is packaged is in a specially designed bottle that is unique to the winery.
