Producer Profile

DO Empordà wines This family-owned Estate was built upon a winemaking tradition that stretches back to the Middle Ages, they produce wines in DO Empordà, which through their hard work and skill they helped create in the 1960s. Their vineyards are rooted on diverse soils from slate to sand, fluvial sediment to gravel, that all run down between the mighty Pyrenees and the sparkling blue of the Med. This setting has helped create a quest for quality that has gone beyond winemaking, encompassing all things cultural, celebrating art and history in all aspects of life. Easy to believe in a region that was home to the godfather of surrealism, Salvador Dali. DO Cava wines The family purchased an additional bodega in Penedes’ capital, Vilafranca del Penedès, allowing Perelada to increase its production, becoming a serious player amongst Spain’s most prominent cava producers. This range is at a price and quality ratio that is hard to argue with, offering incredible value. Every summer Castillo Perelada hosts one of the most prestigious music festivals in Europe. Stars Cava is a tribute to all the artists who have performed under the stars of the Empordà sky.

Viticulture

Fruit comes from an old vineyard in the DO Cava region in Penedès that is sited on clay soil with a high calcium content...slightly alkaline. Debourrement starts in the 2nd week of March and the growing period continues until veraison in July.

Winemaking

Made with selected grapes from D.O. Cava vineyards. Only the very first must pressing of the grapes which give a marked varietal character are selected. Temperature controlled fermentation and secondary fermentation in bottle. At least 9 months in the bottle, before disgorging.

Oak Treatment

No oak treatment
