In the small Catalan town of Subirats lives a wine grower by the name of Xavier Bernet. Here at his winery, named for his daughter Julia, he produces sparkling wines with poise and precision. These are pure wines indicative of terroir and varietal, part of a small yet growing movement to help restore the reputation of Penedès sparkling wines as fine wine. Xavi is part of a collective of winemakers who have left the DO Cava and formed their own group, called Corpinnat, in order to pursue a more terroir driven alternative.
