Wine: Llopart's Clos dels Fóssils is a white wine from the appellation of origin (D.O). Penedès. It’s produced from 100% free run must (which is the juice that escapes naturally from the grapes during pressing). Only selected local indigenous yeasts are used and the wine is aged 4 months in oak barrels. The aromas of the fruity bouquet go in harmony with light smoky tones and toasted oak. In the mouth it is balanced, structured and creamy. A delightful wine!
About Winery: Llopart is a family owned organic winery located in Penedès region with deeply embedded roots in their wine estate. And when we say "deep" roots, we mean "DEEEEP"! According to a document written in Latin and dated 1385, one of their ancestors, Bernardus Leopardi, was granted with some vineyards located in the present country estate Can Llopart de Subirats. (That is over 600 years ago!) Over the following centuries the Llopart family grew grapevines, wheat and olive trees. And at the end of the 18th century the Lloparts decided to devote themselves exclusively to wine growing.
In 1887, Llopart produced its first sparkling wine in the cellar of their old country house. And to this day the Llopart family continues to elaborate their wines according to the traditional method, based on the ancestral wisdom of past generations. Llopart is now known as one of the oldest and most prestigious Cava producers in Spain.
In order to pay homage to their ancestors, Llopart turned to organic and sustainable farming as they believed after more than 25 generations devoted cultivating the land, they had the responsibility to maintain the land for future generations. Llopart’s wines are produced from 100% organic grapes that are harvested by hand and the wines are entirely vinified on the winery's premises.
