Mont Marçal

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. Mont Marçal’s cavas are certified organic.

Winemaker's Notes

Intense and attractive red currant color with violet tones. Fine bubbles and mousse. The nose leads with cherries and blackberries over a base of plum and fig compote with a hint of the lees. On the palate it is young, fruity, fresh, soft and above all very elegant.
