More about Celle Credo
The vineyard as an ecosystem
The wines grow at up to 600 metres above sea level, which gives them freshness and a certain saltiness. The vines of Celler Credo give up their individual status in favour of other, wild plants. Instead, they share the vineyards with wild fennel, wild radish and Catalan daisies. These wild herbs grow unhindered and on an equal footing with the cultivated vines. But also insects and small animals are not seen as plagues but as co-creators of a complex ecosystem.
In this cellar the credo is Xarel-lo
The vinification follows the traditional method, in which some raisins are also processed. The wines also undergo a certain length of maceration (maceration with the skins of the grapes) for more structure and smoothness.
Spontaneous fermentation is a matter of course. Some Celler Credo wines are fermented and aged in traditional Catalan clay vats.
Celler Credo see themselves as "Xarel-lists", that means explorers and interpreters of the Xarel-lo Grape. The Mediterranean grape variety, known from the production of Cava, is at the heart of this project of the Recaredos. One remembers on thousand-and-one interpretation Xarel-lo's: mash-fermented, with stems macerated, without sulfur addition... Speak, created today after the methods of the day before yesterday.
