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.
Cabernet Franc (65%), Cabernet Sauvignon (24%) and Sumoll (10%) varietals come from the vineyards that best reﬂect the terroir of the property.
Free of herbicides, pesticides or other chemicals, the hand-picked grapes are subjected to a variety of viniﬁcation techniques to bring out their singular qualities, as does the 12 months of aging in French oak.
The result is a gorgeous reﬂection of the best of Penedès.
A rich and complex wine, complete with notes of black currant, forest floor and green tobacco. A perfect accompaniment to grilled meats and stews. Pardas’ organically farmed Negre Franc is intended to showcase the diversity of terroir and the harmony that can exist between people and the land
