Producer
Josep Masachs, S.A. is a family firm dedicated to the production of Cava (Sparkling Wine) made by the Traditional Method. The company is located in Torrelles de Foix, in the heart of the Cava and D.O. Penedes Region, at 55 Km. south of Barcelona, northeast of Spain. 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 Penedes 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. Steve Miles and Josep Masachs put their know-how and experience together to produce a unique cava that meets the most demanding palates in the US. The selection of only the highest quality grapes guarantees the authentic character of this Cava. The Gran Sarao cava is a blend of Macabeo, Xarel.lo, Parellada and Chardonnay and undergoes a second fermentation on the bottle for a minimum period of 15 months and therefore is be considered a Reserva quality. As to express a maximum of natural flavours there is almost no liquor or sugar added after the ‘degorge’ to obtain a clean nose, an elegant mouth feel and a generous explosion of fine bubbles. The second fermentation or ageing of this cava is carried out in the 10.000 m2 of subterranean cellars of the winery where the cava develops under a constant temperature and humidity. Josep Masachs is proud to produce the Gran Sarao cava that transmits the long history of cava making in the family. Cava Gran Sarao is the sparkling sensation of Spanish traditional method cava and represents a perfect balance between youth and maturity, man and nature and is ultimately to be enjoyed for every great moment in life.
