Llopart owns 235 acres (95 Ha.) of estate vineyards planted on mountainsides using exclusively sustainable organic agriculture. The vineyards for Original 1887 are all head trained and dry farmed.
Calcareous clay soils with fossilized coral.
Traditional, artisanal methode champenoise. The wines are elaborated from exclusively first press grapes, and secondary fermentation is in bottle. Original 1887 pays homage to the first vintage of wine produced at Llopart, and as a result, the winemaking process is carried out with the most traditional methods possible, like they were in 1887.
Aged in bottle for 60 months.
As one of Spain's oldest wineries and its second oldest producer of sparkling wine, Llopart sought to produce a cava in the style of the wines that the current family's ancestors elaborated in 1887, over 130 years ago. A selection of their oldest and highest altitude mountainside vineyards planted with the oldest clones of Penedès' most important indigenous grapes yield an extremely traditional and refined sparkling wine that is aged for 60 months minimum in bottle. The label is the same design that can be found on the oldest bottles in the family's cellar, dating back to the winery's first vintage of 1887. One of the few designated "Cavas de Paraje," the highest designation of quality a Spanish sparkling wine can achieve.
