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

This cava is a deep red currant color, with violet highlights. Fine perlage, with pronounced aromas of blackberry and cherry over a background of fig compote and plum. Fresh and fruity on the palate, with yeasty notes from time spent aging on the lees. The finish is soft and elegant.
