Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

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. 

Celler Credo Ratpenat is a deep and honest white wine made 100% with macabeo. Fruit-laden, with good acidity and a glimpse of the maceration.

Celler Credo Ratpenat (the Catalan word for “bat”) grew out of an agreement between Celler Credo and the Granollers Natural Science Museum to work together to defend the environment and the creatures that inhabit it. The agreement between both supports projects aimed at raising public awareness of the importance of bats in the ecosystem and at conserving this mammal in the vineyard environment, where it plays a valuable role as an efficient insectivore.

Celler Credo Ratpenat is made from macabeo grapes from family-run vineyards located in the region of Alt Penedés. These dry-farmed vineyards are cultivated following the principles of organic agriculture and biodynamics. They are manually harvested and placed in boxes. Maceration with their skins and stems during the first hours after receiving the grapes. Fermentation in old oak barrels and ageing in the same barrels for some months.

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.
