Pairing fine sparkling wines with Iberico embutidos (cold meats) is an amazing and unforgettable experience. MONTEPARRA is a family owned company founded in mid-XIX century, located in Guijuelo (DO Guijuelo), Extremadura, in the south of Spain. They produce Serrano ham and Iberico embutidos with the savoir faire of the family.
With their own state, the Montecillo state, Iberian pigs grow up in freedom, eating acorns, graze and cereals which allows MONTEPARRA to fully control the life cycle of the animal.
The visit begins in the vineyards of the estate Nadal de la Boadella, some of which are more than 65 years old. In the middle of the estate are located the house, the winery, and the original cellar, built in 1943.
We continue the tour through the main stages of the process of elaboration of the sparkling wine.
We will visit the cellar at a depth of more than 20 m, where the bottles are resting and we are able to witness the second fermentation.
