The vineyard

Among other reasons, Cava came into being as a result of the radical transformation of vineyards because of the invasion by phylloxera.

The properties and characteristics of Cava owe themselves to the soils of the vineyards, the varieties of grape used and the climate.

Vine growing stretches from the Mediterranean coastline to the highest areas, at an altitude of approximately 800 m. However, it is in the central areas, at an altitude of 200 to 300 m. where the largest vine growing area is to be found.

The climate is Mediterranean, sunny, with mild winters and moderately hot summers.

The characteristics above, combined with a moderate rainfall spread throughout the year, create an ideal microclimate for vine growing and the maturation process of the grapes.


Harvest takes place from mid August to the end of October. Grapes are transported to the cellars in boxes containing 25-30 kg or in stainless steel trailers.

Oenologists combine the wines obtained from the different varieties in what they consider the ideal proportion in accordance with the characteristics of their products.
