Celler Pardas – Sus Scrofa – D.O. Penedès
Pardas is the winery from Ramon Parera and Jordi Arnan at Torrelavit.
When we arrived at the estate ten years ago we found a wonderful ancient cellar, which lay dormant since the early twentieth century.
We have respectfully and painstakingly restored the facility to its original glory and today it is once again filled with the aroma of wine.
The original structure and layout have not been changed, on the contrary, and that´s not for sentimental or aesthetic reasons, it is in fitting with our wine concept.
It is an honour for us to work in this incomparable atmosphere.
On our stage the grape the star. It is the grape and not man who passes on to our wines the essence of the terrain and the climate.
Only through the utmost respect and careful treatment of the raw materials are we able to obtain these singular wines of distinguished character.
This is the reason why we employ a low-interventionist approach to all aspects of our vinification process and utilise only essential and low-tech work in the cellar.
100% of the grapes are picked by hand using 25kgs boxes.
This is the only way to ensure that only impeccable, healthy and perfectly ripened grapes are selected.
