|Drink window||2021 - 2025|
The Celler Credo Volaina (in Catalan = Butterfly) is the ultimate representation of the Mediterranean Parellada variety, grown at an altitude of more than 500 meters is made from grapes harvested from two vineyards in the municipality of Aiguamúrcia, in Pla de Manlleu, one of the highest areas in Penedès. One is known as Els Pinyers (owned by winegrower Jaume Bargans); the other, Sant Miquel (owned by winegrower Jaume Nin). Both are grown according to the principles of organic viticulture. The Parellada grapes are harvested by hand to ensure an accurate selection of the fruit and to guarantee the excellent quality. Furthermore, we pay great attention to the maturation of the grapes with the aim of producing wines with natural, fresh acids with the intention of achieving an expressive and balanced wine. The must fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks on our own yeasts from the Celler Credo vineyards, an essential element for producing real terroir wines. To express the true Parellada character as fully as possible, at the end of fermentation we do a light maceration with the destemmed grapes, followed by a bâtonnage of the lees and aging in barrels for six months. This wine may contain natural sediments due to our minimal intervention. Wonderfully fresh with good fresh acidity and very light in alcohol. Especially white fruit, citrus and a mineral touch in the nose. Very refreshing in the mouth and an almost ideal aperitif.
“Only 9.5% alcohol, it can be a fun, informal aperitif wine; it's very light and subtle—some would call it “vegetal water”.
Robert Parker Wine Advocate Luis Gutierrez

The butterfly on the Volaina label is a quip to the Catalan Butterfly Monitoring Scheme, which studies the role of this group of insects ("volaines" in Catalan) as bio-indicators. Volaina is the result of a joint effort by Celler Credo and the Granollers Natural Science Museum to protect the environment and the animals that inhabit it. The agreement between them provides a framework for conducting research and raising awareness of the important role butterflies play in the ecosystem, both as pollinators and as a food source for other species. Celler Credo has partnered with top growers in the Penedès region with whom we share values and a commitment to sustainable viticulture rooted in respect for identity, territory and landscape.
