About Avinyo :

The Avinyó brand is produced by the Esteve Nadal family of Avinyonet del Penedès. The winery is located at their home "Can Fontanals" in the heart of the Penedès region of Barcelona.

On the label of each bottle of Cava there is an inscription in Catalan representing the philosophy of the family. The inscription roughly translates into the following: "From the must of the flower (the free run juice) and with the rigor of a work well crafted."

The patriarch, Joan Esteve, planted vines of Parellada, Xarel-lo and Macabeo 50 years ago so that he could have sparkling wine for himself and his friends. Today, his two sons and daughter carry on the tradition of Avinyó. Plantings of Pinot Noir and Petit Grain Muscat have been introduced to add to earlier Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon additions.

With these plantings Avinyó has expanded its range. Petit Grain Muscat is used to make Vi D’Agulla, their traditional summer white wine. And from the Pinot Noir plantings in the La Fassina vineyard comes the rosé project: Cava Avinyó Rosado Reserva.
