Vallformosa are a historic winery who, despite celebrating their 150 year anniversary in 2015, are at the forefront of modern Cava and wine production. This is a family run business that has a reputation for producing exceptional, and affordable, Cava. Since 1865 the Domènech family has worked lands in Penedès with passion to obtain the best fruit of the vineyards. Francisco José Domènech (1839-1909) was the founder of the winemaking tradition in the family and the first to seek perfection of a well-done work. The phylloxera devastates the entire Penedès vineyards. The cellar of José Domènech Soler (1864-1958) is one of the pioneers in replanting uncontaminated vineyards. The winery gained enormous prestige in the region that ended with the recognition of King Alfonso XIII after visiting the winery in 1904. In 1905, after retrieved the vineyard in the area, José Domènech Torné (1896-1957) acquires all vineyards of the Masia called 'La Sala'. Masia 'La Sala' was occupied during the Spanish Civil War being partially destroyed by the end of it. After retrieving the Masia, José Domènech Torné produced the first bottles of Vallformosa Cava. The Domènech.Vidal family acquires new vineyards to meet market demands. One of these estates is Masia Freyé, a place of retreat and source of inspiration for the Domènech.Vidal family. Creation of a new winemaking area. Enlarge of the facilities in 'La Sala' with three new bottling lines. With our passion, vision and tradition for over more than 140 years, we have created our wines and cavas. An intimate expression of our personality, which honours five generations of wine growers.
