Gramona’s Sparkling Wines of Corpinnat

September 7 @ 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

The Gramona family traces their history as grape growers and winemakers back to 1850 when the Batlle family began selling their wines to sparkling wine producers in France who were at the time suffering from the ravages of phylloxera. It was at this time that Pau Batlle realized that Xarel.lo, the indigenous grape to this part of Catalunya, was instrumental in his success selling wines to France due to its ability to make well-aged sparkling wines. Pau’s daughter Pilar married Bartolomé Gramona and together they continued to expand their vineyards.

The wines made at Gramona are sourced from up to 303 hectares of vineyards that are farmed at least organically as well as the family’s 72 hectares of vines that are farmed biodynamically.

Gramona’s sparkling wines receive perhaps the longest average aging than any other sparkling wines in Spain and are never released until they are perfectly mature. Eighty-six percent of the sparkling wines produced in Spain are released after only 9 months while at Gramona theirs are aged a minimum of 30 months.

After years of frustration and struggle to improve the reputation of Cava, Gramona withdrew from the DO in 2019 becoming founding members of Corpinnat. The Association of Wine Producers and Growers Corpinnat, is a sparkling-wine association (which includes the likes of Recaredo and Can Feixes) that takes into account the entire production of a producer rather than just individual wines. The name Corpinnat is formed by the combination of two Spanish words and means “heart of Penedès.”

Join Export Manager, Baptiste Lava as he pours sparkling and still wines from Gramona and shares some perspective into why Corpinnat is leading the way for quality sparkling wine production in Spain. Baptiste comes from an International background and was raised in France, studied in the U.S and worked in China, Australia & Spain. When he is not tasting or talking about wine, you can find him on the water kitesurfing!
