Celler Credo is the organic and biodynamic wine project of the Recaredo family for the Penedès Designation of Origin.

In recent years, Celler Credo  has established itself as one of the leading wineries in Penedès specializing only in autochthonous varieties and a firm commitment to the implementation of programmes aimed at preserving the ecosystem. Its range of varietal wines from xarel·lo, as well as the collection of biodiversity wines (Ratpenat-Macabeo, Volaina-Parellada and Mirabelles-Malvasía de Sitges) have earned the admiration of critics both national and international, with consolidation in demanding markets such as Japan, Canada, the United States and the Nordic countries. 

This limited edition wine is made exclusively with grapes from a family-owned vineyard in la Pedra Blanca Estate –in the county of Alt Penedès, Barcelona. All of the vineyards have been cultivated according to the principles of organic, biodynamic agriculture. Can Credo is a long-ageing white wine grown, made and bottled on the property. It’s made 100% with xarel·lo variety.

Celler Credo lets cover crop grow spontaneously between the vines. This cover plays a crucial role, loosening the soil, regulating water retention and drainage (essential in the dry farming system they practise), and helping to foster biodiversity and maintain a balance in the vineyard ecosystem. Natural treatments based on plants (phytotherapy) are applied to the vines to control the presence of fungus and strengthen the vine’s defences in a natural way.

All Celler Credo grapes are harvested by hand to ensure the excellent quality of the fruit. Before pressing, the grapes used to make Can Credo wines are inspected on a manual selection table. Can Credo offers the maximum varietal expression of the xarel·lo grape grown in a calcareous soil in a Mediterranean climate. This wine is gently macerated on the grape skins and the pressing yield is very low, getting the most subtle fraction of the must. The must ferments on indigenous yeast from Celler Credo’s vineyards in used oak cask, after which the wine stays in the cask for some months. It may contain completely natural sediments due to a minimal intervention.

Celler Credo is committed to the environment and the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions, for that reason its bottles are of low weight (390 gr).

Celler Credo is the only project established in Penedès to work exclusively with the native white variety Xarello, interpreting and delving into the virtues and properties of this variety. In Celler Credo they have values ​​that bring them closer to the land, to the territories and landscapes, assuming the commitment to produce terroir white wines. They turn out to be chroniclers of a sensory history without frills, genuine, with wines that are honest, with a lot to say and nothing to hide.
Pictures and situation Celler Credo
Today, the D.O Penedès is experimenting with viticulture and winemaking like no other region in Spain, home to a vast range of different grape varieties. The region is home to traditional white and red varieties, foreign ones, noble ones, permitted grapes, experimental grapes, and those that demostrate intrinsic qualities. As well as the grapes, the production techniques used are also worth noting, the location of the vineyards, the yields per hectare, the wines produced using traditional, original or even exclusive blends, the different ageing times, as well as the complexity of the different barrels used! But the reality is, given the vast diversity, it can be difficult to pinpoint what really defines a wine from Penedès, since there are so many types of wines and wineries in the region. However, the common denominator of all the wines from Penedès continues to be balance and quality.
