Sant Sadurní d’Anoia 10th April 2018. The first bottles with the CORPINNAT brand of guarantee will be launched on the first of October. This new project promoted by the Gramona, Llopart, Nadal, Recaredo, Sabaté i Coca and Torelló wineries, was established with the purpose of adding prestige to the sparkling wines made in the heart of the Penedès region. This new guarantee brand is open to all wineries that make sparkling wine within the CORPINNAT territorial delimitation and which comply with the strict commitments established by the rules of regulation: manual harvest, organic certified grapes, use of historic varieties – placing special emphasis on autochthonous ones-, integral vinification on the premises of the winery, ageing longer than 18 months, a minimum guaranteed price to the viticulturist with a gradual increase and an undertaking to thoroughness and self-commitment.
As far as territory is concerned CORPINNAT consists of a compact area of 22,966 hectares of vineyards and is defined by the pre-coastal depression and adjacent hills. The CORPINNAT surface represents 61% of the total Cava surface area which is 33,706 hectares.
The CORPINNAT Brand will be placed on the main label of all sparkling wines made by member wineries which will be required to comply with the regulations mentioned before. In order for the wineries to be able to use the brand, they will also have to pass an initial external audit and another yearly one to certify compliance of these requirements
