Denominacion de Origen



The historic family estate called Can Llopart de Subirats, located just south of Sant Sadurní d'Anoia, in the heart of the Alta Penedès


45% Xarel-lo, 35% Macabeo, 20% Parrellada


The family owned 500Ha. of Mediterranean mountainland in the heart of the Alta Penedès, 102 Ha. of which are planted to vineyards.

Year(s) Planted



The vineyards are farmed organically (certified) and without irrigation. The vineyards are primarily head-trained bush vines while younger plantings are on high density trellises. Following the laws established by CORPINNAT, irrigation is used (with max 8 T/Ha. yields) to establish young vines but older vineyards are dry farmed. All of the vineyards are cared for manually without mechanization. Plowing in the oldest vineyards is done by horse.


Rocky calcareous clay soils of a sandy texture with limestone and dolomite mother rock originating 20 million years ago. The Llopart vineyards combine steep slopes and terraces.


Mediterranean climate


Methode champenoise. Hand harvested grapes are cooled at the winery to 14 degrees Celsius. Whole cluster pressed with very gentle levels of pressure, 50% of the first press is used. Base wines are vinified via spontaneous fermentation in small lots ranging from 1,000L to 5,000L to maintain segregation of the vineyard parcels in the cellar. Base wines are aged in tank sur lie for a short period of time before being racked to bottle. Secondary fermentation is carried out in the bottle. Final dosage is less than 6 g/L.


Minimum of 36 months in bottle after the secondary fermentation.


The Llopart family was first granted this estate in 1385, when primary source documentation records Bernardus Leopardi receiving a land grant that was already planted to grape vines. Production of sparkling wine began in 1887 and Llopart was consolidated into a fine winemaking house in the mid-20th century by Pere Llopart i Vilaros. This makes Llopart the longest continuously run family owned sparkling wine house in Spain. In 2017, Llopart left the DO Cava to establish CORPINNAT as one of the six original founding growers.
