About Castellroig Sabaté I Coca Corpinnat Reserva

Unique to the Cava-producing region of Penedès, Castellroig represents one of the few 100% family-owned, estate-run establishments. Father and son Marcelino Sabaté and Marcel Sabaté I Coca apply all their efforts and passion for maintaining family tradition while incorporating technological advancements in the cellar. They represent four generations of organic grape growing with complete respect for the environment and varietals native to the land.

Marcel Sabaté conducted an in-depth scientific study of the land’s different soils, allowing them to identify 18 different soils on their estate. These 18 soils make up the different strata of the 66 plots that are micro-vinified separately to contribute their particular essence and uniqueness to the products. Grapes are carefully selected for each bottling and hand harvested from these terroirs. Over ten years ago, Marcel created the ‘Vins de Terrer’ guarantee and sealed approved by DO Cava, to differentiate his soil selection and micro vinification processes in Penedès.

Sabaté I Coca is one of nine producers to have a vineyard site qualify for Cava de Paraje status, the Finca Terroja vineyard when Spain’s ministry of agriculture announced in 2017 that the first 12 sites to form part of this new classification. Similar to a grand cru concept, it was an important step to distinguish Spain’s highest quality traditional method. This status applies equally to their wines: the Brut Nature ‘Sabaté I Coca Reserva Familiar’ and Xarel-lo Sabaté I Coca Terroja.’

Finca Sabaté I Coca is one of the founders of CORPINNAT, a traditional method sparkling wine association in Catalunya that was created to hold producers to a higher production standard than DO Cava. CORPINNAT has the strictest sparkling wine regulations in the world: 100% organic, 100% sustainable, 100% hand-harvested vineyards, 100% vinified on the winery’s premises, long aging over 18 months, and at least 90% indigenous grapes. The name Corpinnat was born of two concepts: cor (“heart”), referring to the heartland in Catalunya, where Spain’s first sparkling wines began more than 130 years ago, and pinnat from the Latin word pinnae, documented in the 10th Century as penetense, and the root name for Penedès.

Xarel-lo is the leading focus in all of Marcel’s still whites. Other native varieties may be added to the blend depending on the vintage. Otherwise, all are 100% Xarel-lo. Sabaté I Coca ‘Terroja’ comes from a single vineyard site of over 100-year-old Xarel-lo vines named Terroja. The unique terroir of the Terroja vineyard ensures the old, low-yielding Xarel-lo vines ripen fully and provide maximum expression of the land. The winery’s top traditional method cuvee, the Brut Nature ‘Reserva Familiar,’ is produced solely from the Terroja vineyard.

Marcelino Sabaté and Marcel Sabaté I Coca are pioneers of their region. Their focus on terroir, organic farming, sustainability, and commitment to honesty and authenticity allows them to produce wines with richness, variety, nuances, expression, purity, and quality.
