Xamprada is Palacio de Canedo's sparkling wine and the first in this style to be produced in El Bierzo. It has been in José Luis Prada's mind ever since he took over the Palacio de Canedo: almost half of the plot surrounding the monument was planted with the Chardonnay variety to accompany the native Godello.

El chardonnay es la uva blanca que hace los vinos base de la mayoría de los grandes espumosos mundiales. Los enólogos valoran en ella su cuerpo y la capacidad para envejecer, algo esencial en vinos que pasan por una segunda fermentación en botella y, como en el caso del Xamprada, están año y medio en rima en la bodega.

The distinctive feature that sets this sparkling wine apart is the Godello, the most characteristic white variety from El Bierzo and the one that Prada bet on from the beginning. The Godello is blended 50-50 with the Chardonnay, combining the sparkle and freshness of El Bierzo white wines with the body and structure of the Chardonnay.

The name was invented by Prada and was a real find, Xamprada, easily identifiable and unique, just what you look for in a successful brand.

El Xamprada tiene entre sus reconocimientos un Zarcillo de Oro, un Oro en el Concurso Mundial de Bruselas, entre otros, y el Xamprada Rosado un Zarcillo de Plata.

In addition, our sparkling wines carry the organic wine back label, reaffirming our commitment to the environment and the land we have borrowed and want to leave to future generations.

The vineyard behind these bottles is owned by the Palacio de Canedo, most of it on the estate surrounding the Palace and the rest of the Godello in the vicinity, on midday-oriented slopes between Canedo and Campelo.

The grapes are harvested at the end of August, the first grapes to be cut in El Bierzo, as the base wine of the sparkling wines must be harvested with low alcohol content, below twelve % ABV, as it will go through a second fermentation in the bottle later.

El Palacio de Canedo festeja una fiesta del Xamprada en vísperas de la Navidad con el encendido del alumbrado navideño del Palacio y la entrega de la Castaña de Oro de la Fundación Prada a Tope, un premio a una persona o institución que se ha distinguido por su promoción de El Bierzo.
