Trepat is a red-wine grape variety indigenous to north-eastern Spain. It is most conspicuous in the rosado (rosé) cavas of the region but may also be used in red wine blends along with Garnacha and Tempranillo.
Trepat is traditionally associated with Conca de Barbera and Costers des Segre regions, although it is the clean-tasting sparkling pink cava wines for which the variety has become best known. The wines typically show red-berry flavors and represent excellent value for money.
In recent years a select few dry reds made from Trepat have shown glimmers of potential, and may hint at a brighter future for this little-known Spanish variety.
