Ramon Parera (an oenologist) and Jordi Arnan (an agronomist), both of whom are originally from St. Sadurní d’Anoia, founded Celler Pardas back in 1996. More precisely, the Can Comas estate is home to Cellar Pardas, which lies between 200 and 300 meters above sea level in the upper Penedès region and spans the Riudebitlles Valley, Catalunya.
The Bitlles River, which flows through this valley, greatly influences the orography, humidity, wind direction, and soil types of the estate. Traditional varieties like Sumol, Xarel-lo, Macabeo and Malvasia are grown here, along with Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon.
All of the vineyards at Con Comas are farmed with the utmost attention towards preserving the land and its health. Parera and Arnan consider Can Comas a cultural landscape, and one that harmoniously exemplifies how the human and natural element can thrive together.
Pardas "Rupestris" Blanco Penedès 2014
Fresh and bright, with notes of white flower, citrus and peach. A wine to share with dinner, friends and lighter fare.
Pardas Xarel-lo Penedès 2011
Cellar Pardas’ most serious rendition of this classic variety from the region. Barrel fermentation and light batonnage imparts richness and depth to the wine, however not at the expense of acidity and balance.
Pardas "Sus Scrofa" Penedès 2015
Sus Scrofa is the latin term for wild boar, and animal that makes its home in the hills of the Alta Penedès. It is also the emblem of Celler Pardas, as its image is depicted on many of the wines from the winery. Sus Scrofa is the younger, more easy drinking 100% Sumoll from Celler Pardas.
Pardas "Collita Roja" Penedès 2013
From the vineyards of Torrelavit, Sant Llorenç d´Hortons, Piera and la Llacuna, and North Penedès comes this 100% Sumoll from Celler Pardas. Deep, rich and a bit rough hewn, it possesses an authenticity and character that is inimitable in the world of wine.
Pardas "Negre Franc" Penedès 2011
A rich and complex wine, complete with notes of black currant, forest floor and green tobacco. A perfect accompaniment to grilled meats and stews. Negre Franc is intended to showcase the diversity of terroir and the harmony that can exist between people and the land.
