Castell d'Age

This top-flight producer of dry, long-aged Cava is a superb discovery. With several geographically diverse parcels to work with, the resemblance to Champagne is suggestive. This is Cava with attitude from a woman-run estate that pioneered organic viticulture in Pénédès and is now certified by Demeter. After the recent triumphant visit to California of Olivia Junyent, we are happy to have several new wines from her to sell. Like Mestres, they use no giro-pallettes. Brother Josep is the impassioned director of viticulture and a fervent believer in bio-dynamism.

Property History:

The Castell d’Age cellars are the original creation of women belonging to the Junyent family, in a place blessed by the Gods. Set in the Penedès countryside, sheltering under the Mediterranean sky. Here we have been making organic wines and cavas of the highest quality, from the very start. Products, originating from the land and the rain, which aim to touch upon the high point of our sense perceptions. Over 20 years ago, Anne Marie began to cultivate and produce our organic wines and cavas. As the new generation follows her footsteps, we have gone one step further with a move to biodynamic agriculture, a method that respects the relationship between man and earth. The results are there to be seen, and tasted. We started tending and caring for our vineyards over 50 years ago. Castell d’Age currently owns six estates, located in the Penedès DO, made up of different types of soil and situated at varying altitudes so that each variety finds the most suitable environment, where it can express its great potential. Castell d’Age wines and cavas are produced in the bodegas just as the vines are grown in the vineyard: respecting E.U. organic regulations. Patiently. We have all the time in the world…
