Bodega Segura Viudas (Barcelona) has more than 50 years of experience in the production of cavas and wines with Designation of Origin Catalunya. It stands out for its sustainable working methods that respect the biodiversity of the area.
Segura Viudas is a winery that is located in Torrelavit (municipality of the province of Barcelona) since 1954, although the family's wine tradition has generations of history. This area of the Catalan community stands out for being one of the best locations in Spain for the production of sparkling wines, so Segura Viudas was committed from the beginning to the creation of cavas.
Something that in the winery has always been of great importance is the conservation of the biodiversity of the area. Therefore, for the production of cavas and wines of Heredad Segura Viudas, organic (ecological) and sustainable production methods are followed.
Already from the cultivation of the vines is committed to the organic care that respects the ecosystem of this area on the banks of the Bitlles River. The harvest is done by hand and at the ideal time of ripening of the grapes, so that they do not suffer and retain all their properties. In the winery the methods for the production of wines and cavas are artisanal, which allows the wines not to lose the attributes provided by the terroir.
The grape varieties that are most cultivated for the elaboration of cava are Macabeo, Parellada and Xarel·lo, which in this area of Penedés acquire the best properties that are then transmitted to the sparkling wines. In the case of wines, the most used grapes are Tempranillo, Garnacha (Grenache) and Merlot.
The aging process of the sparkling wines takes place in the old cellar of the winery, where thousands of bottles have rested throughout the more than 50 years of history of Segura Viudas.
The winery divides its elaborations into two collections. The first of them is composed of its four sparkling wines with Cava Designation of Origin: Brut Reserva, Brut Reserva Heredad, Torre Galimany and Brut Vintage. The second brings together the five types of wines produced in Segura Viudas: the MAS d'Aranyó and Garnatxa red wines; the Creu de Lavit and Xarel·lo white wines; and the rosé.
