About the producer

The Masachs family elaborates cavas since 1880, and therefore belongs to the pioneers of cava production in Spain. The ‘secret’ of producing outstanding quality lies mainly in the growing of grapes. Besides the 45 ha of vineyards in family possession Masachs also has long term contracts to purchase grapes from neighbouring farmers. Our wine makers, today under supervision of the oenolog Alex Ruiz Masachs, the fourth generation, guide the farmers to produce the best quality. Josep Masachs has strong relations with the farmers for many years and understands that quality is not equal to quantity. Therefore they reduce the yields of young vines and nourish the old vines for obtaining a high level of aromas, colour and structure. The three main varieties Macabeo, Xarel.lo, Parellada are native of the Penedès area and many of the vineyards have been elaborated for more then 100 years, thus reaching a high level of optimization of production with sustainable agriculture techniques and maximum respect for nature. Thirty years ago Masachs introduced the Chardonnay variety to give a touch of florality and creaminess to his cavas.
