Description

The winery Mont Marçal Vinícola was founded in 1975 by Manuel Sancho who, after many years of
dedication to the world of the music, directed his activity towards a new art; the world of wine and
cava. Since 2015, under new ownership, the philosophy of the winery and the dedication to producing
quality wines under the Denominations of Origén Penedès, Catalunya, and Cava continue. The
winery, originally a 14th century farmhouse and then a 19th century convent, is now a state-of-the-art
winemaking facility. Excavation expanded the Cava aging and bottling capacity, at the same time
revealing medieval underground passageways in the chalk which have been carefully preserved for
additional bottle storage. The estate has 100 acres of vineyards and the “Mont” provides 360-degree
exposure, creating a wide variety of microclimates for maturation of the various varieties.
