The vines of our vineyards bear faithful witness to our attitude. The vine cultivation experience, passed on from generation to generation for hundreds of years, together with the family tradition, have resulted in our own personal production method.
At AVINYÓ CAVAS we spend most of our time tending to the vines. The secret to producing a good cava is doing a good job all year-round and respecting the natural environment. For twelve months, we work every day to make sure we get a healthy, balanced and quality harvest. We are strongly committed to continuing with the principles of ancestral agriculture fully adapted to the 21st-century. As a result, we are in the process of being certified as an ecological agricultural producer.
The winery is located in the centre of the main estate. This location is not by chance. This is a way of ensuring that grapes coming from the vineyards arrive at the winery within a few minutes, without losing quality or freshness.
Our oenologist is responsible for quality control and deciding, among other things, the perfect moment for the grape harvest, knowing the optimal point of ripening.
The harvest is always carried out at daybreak. This ensures the coolest temperature of the day to prevent oxidation of the grape. Once collected, we quickly take the grapes to the winery where we gently press only 0.2 bars to extract the flower must.
Alcoholic fermentation is carried out in tanks at a low temperature (16oC). Here the must has already become wine. Now is the time to transfer it to other tanks to remove the yeasts that have precipitated, until the wine is clean and crystalline, which is an ideal moment to taste the wines one by one to define the blend.
