The history of Codorníu is the story of 18 generations of a vine growing family. In 1872, Josep Raventós made the first bottle of cava, applying the traditional method to a blend of the grape varieties of Penedès: Macabeo, Xarel·lo and Parellada. Codorníu reflects the history, tradition, passion and expertise of a family winery with more than 450 years of history, which today continues to maintain its leading position in the production of quality wines and cavas. His cellars in Sant Sadurní d’Anoia were declared a National Historic Artistic Monument in 1976, as one of the key works of Catalan modernism, created by Puig i Cadafalch.
We plan the optimum harvest time for each variety.
We plan the optimum harvest time for each variety. After destemming and pressing the grapes we obtain the musts that ferment at a controlled temperature of 17-18 °C. Once all the fermentations have been made and the wines stabilized, we prepare the coupage. Each variety provides a special feature: the Macabeu, gives us wines of moderate acidity but highly floral, which provide a delicate structure. The Xarel·lo variety produces wines that allow aging thanks to its structure, good acidity and a good alcohol content. Finally, the Parellada fills the wines with fragrance and floral aromas. Carried out the coupage, the bottles rest in our underground cellars at a constant temperature so that the second fermentation is carried out successfully.
The grapes used in the elaboration of Delapierre Etiqueta Negra Brut come basically from the most Mediterranean climate zone of the D.O. Cava.
The grapes used in the elaboration of Delapierre Etiqueta Negra Brut come basically from the most Mediterranean climate zone of the D.O. Cava, where the autochthonous varieties show all their typicity. They are cultivated in vineyards selected by our viticulture teams that work together with our suppliers throughout the year to continuously improve crops, carry out maturation monitoring, determine harvest times and finally, advise them so that the grapes reach our cavas in the best conditions, through a quick and careful transport to the winery.
