NAVERAN VINEYARDS GROWS WHITE GRAPES FROM THE PENEDÉS—MACABEU, XAREL.LO AND PARELLADA— IN ADDITION TO VIOGNIER AND CHARDONNAY. ITS SELECTION OF RED GRAPES INCLUDES CABERNET SAUVIGNON, PINOT NOIR, SYRAH, TEMPRANILLO AND MERLOT.
Because of the estate’s unique physical geography, defined by natural unevenness and dominated by slightly inclined slopes, the vines develop favorably, bathed in a sunny glow most of the day.
Can Parellada, one of the largest properties in the Alt Penedés, totals 110 hectares. It includes a large family home and various other buildings that hold cellars, underground storage areas for aging the wine, and warehouses with their products.
Their cellars have a capacity for one million liters, stored in stainless steel tanks and 500 French oak barrels from Limousin. Annual production is 500,000 bottles (50% cava, 50% wine).
