About the region
With a clear Mediterranean influence, Penedes has a long tradition on sparkling elaborated by the traditional or champenois method. Thanks to the soft Mediterranean climate and clay soils, the grape has the optimum conditions of maturity.
Masia Puigmoltò is placed in an old farmhouse in Castellet and Gornal area (Penedès, Barcelona) and of which there is written record dating back to 1186. The vineyard consists of 48 hectares of clayey soil, low in organic material and chalk which brings the acidity necessary to maintain the fresh taste of our cavas.
A traditional Catalan farmhouse, the Masia, hides inside a modern winery, counting on trunk-conic stainless steel tanks, cold equipment… and all the vanguard technology required to elaborate quality wines.
One of the most emblematic parts of the winery is the impressive structure of cava. This is a rather unique dome-shaped building 10 meters deep allowing naturally maintain a constant temperature (around 14°C) throughout the year.Website besuchen
