A long winemaking tradition, with a family saga that dates back to 1312, leads Josep Mestres Manobens to elaborate in 1925 the first bottle of white wine, with a second fermentation, after a long period of aging in the cellar. The sparkling wine was presented at Christmas of 1928 with the name Cava Mestres. From this moment, the family has continued to make the Heretat Mestres cavas following the traditional method, and even today all the processes of preparation, removal, slaughter and other care are carried out manually, bottle by bottle, taking all the time necessary.More about the Winery
