CLÀSSIC PENEDÈS AND CORPINNAT CLOSE WITHOUT AGREEMENT A FIRST PHASE OF CONVERSATIONS TO CREATE A NEW DESIGNATION OF ORIGIN OF PENEDÈS SPARKLING WINES
The wineries producing Clàssic Penedès and CORPINNAT have closed the first phase of conversations for the creation of a future Designation of Origin of Penedès sparkling wines without having reached a definitive agreement. Both sides highly value this period of dialogue, as agreements have been reached on some issues, although differences have been reached on others. After the last meeting held on March 11, the two parties have decided to continue working internally from each group on the points of disagreement without being conditioned on an immediate schedule.
Both the objective and the desire to promote a new DO of Penedès sparkling wines whose main values are the defense of the territory and the quality of the product remain intact on both sides. These ten months of talks have served to approximate positions and reach important agreements for the future DO, but after this period of contacts we have come to the conclusion that the points of discrepancy must be matured internally.
Both the developers of Clàssic Penedès and those of CORPINNAT want to express our commitment to dialogue with any group for the good of the whole sector and the territory.
