Xarel.lo (sha-RELL-oh) is Catalonia's finest white variety; it is a pithy, salty analogue to Chardonnay in France; in the Penedès it's frequently grown on rocky, calcareous soils, not far off from the limestone of Chablis. Our comrade Ruben Parera's top bottling of this fine white grape is stirring: elegant, layered, deeply fresh, with lots of both body and citrus rind to keep things interesting. One of our favorite and perhaps one of the grandest white wines in the shop, and a tribute to how this grape variety can age when handled seriously.

Finca Parera

Finca Parera


Finca parera was founded in 1998 and is located in penedes, spain. Family-run by ruben parera, jordi parera, jordi puigmacia and kike vila each member brings their different backgrounds in agricultural engineering, winemaking, and farming to the vineyard.

Parera is truly one of the most revolutionary growers and winemakers we know and helping reshape catalonia that historically is mostly known for industrial cava. We adore his wines and have saved plenty of his khronos sumoll in the cellar and you should do the same.
