Just 30 minutes outside of Barcelona we´ll find the little village Sant Sadurni d´Anoia wich is the center of the Spanish Cava industry. Well, on this particular sunday morning it is hard to become aware of that because the whole village still seems to be sleeping. Almost next to each other we see all the famous Cava Bodegas like Freixenet, Juve e Camps, Codorniu and many many more. Althoud most of them stay closed this morning we are welcome in the bodegas of Montesquius.
This prestigeous bodega dates from 1918 and their Cavas are really different. Thirst of all they come in the most stylish cava bottles we have ever seen. besides that, the color of the rose cavas makes you almost shiver with pleasure. Manel, our host, shows and tells us all the secrets of the Montequius bodegas before he leads us to the tasting room to enjoy all these beautifull wines.
The facts that overripe grapes are used and the aging of the wines is much longer than required make these wines so special. So special that is was easy to forget all about time so that our 1,5 hour visit easily became 3 hours. Thank you Manel!
Wine factory would be pleased to organise your next trip to Bodegas Montesquius.
