Last 30th of January, the 9 wine producers who together form the CORPINNAT brand formalised their departure from the DO Cava due to lack of consensus with the Regulator Board

Today is a remarkable day for Gramona and all those who, in one way or another, are part of the CORPINNAT Brand and have been involved in its commercial development. Gramona, along with the 8 other producers who, currently and pending new additions, make up the collective European Union brand CORPINNAT – Recaredo, Torelló, Llopart, Nadal, Sabaté i Coca, Mas Candí, Huget-Can Feixes and Júlia Vernet – has requested its voluntary departure from the Cava Regulator Board.

Along with these producers, Gramona is embarking on a new journey as a Quality Sparkling Wine with the quality seal of CORPINNAT, a name that means “Born in the Heart of Penedés”. The first bottles featuring this quality branding on the label will be released on the market this spring. This means that the word ‘Cava’ will disappear from the label and that we will include the name CORPINNAT along with the statement “Vino Espumoso de Calidad, Método Tradicional” (Quality Sparkling Wine, Traditional Method), the claim “Grown in a Barcelona Historic Wine Valley”, and the number of months’ of ageing each bottle has undergone. For a period of time, bottles featuring the word Cava and the word CORPINNAT will coexist on the market, however the wine will be the same.

All these wineries together represented 1% of Cava production, but the 30% of Gran Rerva and 6 out of 13 Parajes Calificados (the new premium section of Cava).

 

Inception and evolution of CORPINNAT.

In 2015, the descendants of the sparkling wine producers who created the “Agrupación de Elaboradores de Cava” (Association of Cava Producers) in Sant Sadurní d’Anoia in the 70s, met to discuss their concern about the future of the Cava industry. The original association had been committed to the traditional method of production (then called champenoise) and it eventually became the Cava Regulator Board (CRDO Cava).

As an outcome of these meetings, the “Asociación de Viticultores y Elaboradores CORPINNAT” (Association of Wine Producers and Growers CORPINNAT) was created in 2017 with the purpose of promoting the notion of specific territories within the Cava DO and thereby championing the uniqueness of each of them according to their geography, climate, geology and history. It also wanted to highlight the work on quality development that had been carried out over the last 50 years by producers who aspire to have Cava considered to be among the finest sparkling wines in the world. To achieve this, they wanted to introduce a set of rules that would clearly distinguish the different types and qualities of Cava, offering a logical explanation as to why there are Cavas selling at €3 and others at €100.

The Regulator Board has greeted this initiative, led by some of Cava’s most iconic producers, with some scepticism. Throughout the months of negotiations, the conversations between CORPINNAT and the DO Cava, especially with the new Board appointed last summer, have been constructive for the industry as a whole and, as a result, the Regulator Board has incorporated the eventual establishment of demarcated areas within the boundaries of the Denominación de Origen into its vision. However, it has not been possible to reach a solution that is satisfactory to both parties, and the CORPINNAT member producers felt that they had no other choice than to leave the DO, despite the fact that they had created the CORPINNAT brand with the clear intent of coexisting within Cava.

CORPINNAT, and Gramona in particular (Gramona currently holds the Presidency of CORPINNAT in conjunction with Recaredo), will try to continue to reach out to Cava and to be involved in the necessary change to the Denominación de Origen that has only been proposed following negotiations with CORPINNAT.

 

CORPINNAT today

At this point in time, and following months of negotiation, Gramona and its partners within CORPINNAT have decided to make use of its collective brand, which acts as a guarantee of the producers’ affiliation to a specific territory and a set of production rules that are the most stringent within the sparkling wine world. These rules include the following requirements:

  • 100% organic grapes
  • 100% manual harvest
  • Minimum of 18 months’ ageing. Likewise, making a sparkling wine aged for more than 30 and another for more than 60 months
  • The incorporation of the wine grower in the value chain
  • And the guarantee that all of the wine is vinified on the premises of the winery.

Over and above the demanding requirements of the collective brand, Gramona is 100% biodynamic, has its own animal farm, uses its own preparations, and works part
of its land (up to 22 hectares) with its own horses. It only presses whole grapes that enables it to carry out a selection of the musts (Imperial-Cuvée). It also uses only craft processes, ageing its wines under cork stopper, has its own solera system to create the dosage and carries out the longest ageing on the market (ageing the wine for a minimum of 36 months and regularly up to 16 years, as well as the rare wines aged between 15 and 22 years residing in its Library of Vintages).
Today, we embark on this new journey to explain and promote the greatness and unique character of our sparkling wines. We hope that you will be as excited about this initiative as we are, and that we can continue to work together to achieve this mission that we have all long been dedicated to.
