The name Monistrol comes from a deformation of the Latin word "Monasteriolo" which stands for a small monastery build in the Middle-Ages. the presence of vineyards in the region has been visible since the 16th century with a small village of winegrowers, but we have to wait one hundred more years for the Marqués de Monistrol's arrival.
As time goes by, the vineyards expanded steadily and, in the 19th century, the region adopted the vinification method from the Champagne region which has been used in the traditional cava-making process up to this day.
El Marqués de Monistrol is located in the heart of the Penedés regions and, with its 450 hectares of vines, it is the most prominent cellar from Sant Sadurní d'Anoia. The specificities of the region ensure a great variety of grapes such as Parellada, Merlot, Chardonnay, Xarel.lo and Macabeo, spread over different altitudes. Moreover, the orientation of the vineyards allow for a maximal sun exposure and the land inclination works as a natural drainage system.
