As many of you already know, just over a year ago, five wineries in Penedès founded the brand of sparkling quality wines Corpinnat. Now we are nine houses and part of our day to day is dedicated to explain what is Corpinnat and what values and commitments are behind it.
When it seemed that the complicated part was going to be to explain this, we were very pleasantly surprised to see how most people assimilated and understood it quickly and also in a very «natural» way. It could be said that they were already waiting for it. The best? see the good reception we have had, the great support and the impulse that you keep giving us. Even so, we know that there is still a long way to do. But now, what about the name, where does Corpinnat come from?
A word that at first sight seems strange, when dividing it, quickly takes on all its meaning. COR (Heart) – PINNAT (etymological root of the Penedès place-name) – NAT (born); that is to say: HEART – PENEDÈS – BORN, or in other words «Born in the heart of Penedès. One of our main values, the origin, the linking of sparkling wines to a terroir, to some varieties, to some commitments, to a history and to a wine culture. Seen that way, it’s easier to understand, right?
