Once again, we have received the Bureau Veritas certificate, confirming our commitment to the collective brand regulations of Corpinnat. This recognition reflects our steadfast dedication, adhering to the following specifications:

  • Our vineyards are ecological and are within Corpinnat territory, in our case the Can Martí estate.
  • The harvest is done manually.
  • At least 90% of the grapes come from the historical varieties.
  • At least 75% of the grapes come from our own vineyards or from vineyards linked to the producer through a minimum contract of three years.
  • The totality of the Corpinnat sparkling wine is made in our cellar, by the traditional method, and is aged for at least 18 months.

What is Bureau Veritas?

Bureau Veritas is a company founded in 1828, a leader in testing, inspection, and certification, operating in over 140 countries. It provides solutions to ensure quality, safety, and sustainability across various sectors. Since the creation of the collective brand Corpinnat, Bureau Veritas has been responsible for auditing compliance with the regulations by the wineries that are part of Corpinnat.

Corpinnat regulations

The Corpinnat collective brand is a certification that guarantees the quality and authenticity of sparkling wines produced in the wine region of Penedès, in Catalonia, Spain. These regulations establish strict standards that producers must meet to obtain this designation.

Requirements include sustainable agricultural practices, manual harvesting, use of historical grape varieties, control of the production process in the producer’s cellar, and minimum bottle aging. In summary, Corpinnat ensures that sparkling wines bearing this label represent the excellence and tradition of the Penedès region.
