Characteristics of Naverán Brut Vintage
Naverán Brut Vintage is a cava produced by Naverán. It is a blend of 3 grapes varieties; Macabeo (50%), Xarelo (30%) and Parellada (20%).
The grapes, after having been delicately harvested, are pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks in a low temperature. Each variety is kept seperate during this process. The three varieties are then blended and undergo a second fermentation. This lasts for 2 years and takes place in the bottle, following the methods used to make Champagne.
Before being put on the market, Naverán Brut Vintage passes through the process of, disgorging, capping and labeling.
The Naverán was founded back in 1984 but Michel Gillieron, a trained winemaker from the École d’Ingénieursnde Changins (Switzerland) who now owns the winery. Through artesan techniques and familiarity, Naverán maintains a sence of identity.

Cava was born under the constant shadow of its French counterpart, Champagne. However, produced over 1,200km away and a gap of over 100 years, Cava was always going to be a completely different product, even if produced using the same method and and sometimes with the same varieties. Firstly the climate and soil have a profound impact on the yields, while the plant strains that thrive here and completely different to those in the Champagne region. Fortunately, as more winemakers are becoming convinced of this, they are producing Cavas with their own personality, showing off the art of the second fermentation in the bottle like no other wine region in the world.
The origin of the property as XI century Romanesque chapel attests that it exists. In the mid-nineteenth century, Don Pablo Parellada of Naverán, of noble origin, built a solid foundation for proper installation wine. Throughout their generations, the house Naverán has kept its traditional character and family. The vineyards, with an area of 100 hectares, are located in the heart of Alt Penedès, a region ideal for producing wines and champagne, and they are born and mature white and red grapes del Penedès. Also, have also been introduced varieties chardonnay, cabernet sauvignon and merlot, giving an excellent result. The facility houses a capacity of 1 million liters in stainless steel tanks and 500 French oak barrels of Limousin.
