Winemaker Notes

#76 of Wine Spectator's Top 100 of 2020

The flagship of Vins El Cep, this is a phenomenal Cava that is characteristically elegant, balanced, and fresh. It is an exclusive product.

Blend: 25% Macabeo, 20% Xarel·lo, 20% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Noir, 15% Parellada

Perfect as an aperitif, or served with seafood, sushi, white meats, and creamy cheeses.

Coming from older vines, the 2015 Gelida Brut Gran Reserva is a blend of 35% Xarel·lo, 25% Macabeo, 20% Parellada, and 20%Chardonnay that spent 40 months on lees before bottling. Its more golden color is followed by a beautiful notes of golden apples, orange blossom, brioche, and honeysuckle. It's rich, has beautiful depth of fruit, good purity, and a clean finish. It's another terrific, richer example of Cava to drink over the coming 4-6 years.

Wine Spectator
Apricot and tangerine flavors are set on the fine mousse of this expressive Cava, layered with hints of pastry cream, toasted almond and candied ginger. Fresh and zesty on the lingering finish.

Vins el Cep Winery Video

Vins el Cep is owned by several families, who’s vineyards together produce the unique, terroir driven, sustainable cavas and wines.

Owned by the Carreras family, the 60Ha. Can Prats vineyard estate is located in Sant Llorenç d’Hortons. Macabeo, Xarel·lo, Parellada, Pinot Noir, and Tempranillo are all grown on the estate, which was first developed by Berenguer Raspall, who built the estate’s masia, or farmhouse, in 1393. In 1568, Jaume Prats renamed the estate and consolidated viticulture on the farm.

The Can Castany vineyard estate is owned by the Masana family and was founded in 1448 by Joan Duran. In 1513, Felip Castany named the basilical style masia. The current proprietor, Gil Masana, is one of the founding members of Vins El Cep and is extremely well versed in the cultivation of grapes in this privileged area. It is a 50Ha. completely organically cultivated estate, where Vins El Cep’s oldest vines are found, dating back to 1928. Macabeo, Xarel·lo, Parellada, Chardonnay, Muscat, Tempranillo, Merlot, Syrah, and Cabernet Sauvignon are all grown.

The Parera family owns the Can Miquel de les Planes vineyard estate. The current proprietor, Pere Parera, founding member of Vins El Cep, is the pioneer in Penedès for biodynamic viticulture, and was the first in the D.O. to push for and implement biodynamic viticulture in his vineyards in 2003. The estate is 30Ha. of completely organic and biodynamically farmed Macabeo, Parrellada, Chardonnay, and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Finally, the Esteve family, founding members of Vins El Cep, own the vineyard estate Can Simon, which was first founded in 1501 by Mateo Joan. The estate was named in 1673 by Jaume Simon. It consists of 50Ha. of Macabeo, Xarel·lo, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Merlot.

Vins El Cep is the pioneer in D.O. Penedès for the production of sustainably grown cava, and were the first in Spain to produce a biodynamically farmed cava.

A superior source of white grapes for the production of Spain’s prized sparkling wine, Cava, the Penedes region is part of Catalunya and sits just south of Barcelona. Medio Penedès is the most productive source of the Cava grapes, Macabeo, Xarel-lo, and Parellada. Penedes also grows Garnacha and Tempranillo (here called Ull de Llebre in Catalan) for high quality reds and rosès.

Representing the topmost expression of a Champagne house, a vintage Champagne is one made from the produce of a single, superior harvest year. Vintage Champagnes account for a mere 5% of total Champagne production and are produced about three times in a decade. Champagne is typically made as a blend of multiple years in order to preserve the house style; these will have non-vintage, or simply, NV on the label. The term, "vintage," as it applies to all wine, simply means a single harvest year.
