Winemaker's Notes:

Brut Rosé Juvé y Camps is produced from Pinot Noir grapes grown in the Feixa 1 vineyard at the Espiells estate. The free run juice is allowed a brief maceration on the skins.

The wine is of a pretty, deep pink color. On the nose there are both floral and berry fruit notes in perfect harmony. Long bottle aging – 3 years -has brought balance, length and weight while retaining freshness and vivacity.

About Juve Y Camps:

Juvé y Camps has been a family run company for three generations and has garnered an international reputation. Over two hundred years ago, Joan Juvé Mir, a bold and enterprising vine grower with ideas way ahead of his time, laid the foundations of what would become the family firm.

He began the task which was carried on by his son, Antoni Juvé Escaiola, who, amongst other challenges, had to confront the effects of the terrible phylloxera plague. Advocating replanting, with other leading figures of the Penedes, he led a drive to restore the vineyards and to rebuild the wine production of the region.

A man respected and loved by his contemporaries, his example encouraged his son, Joan Juvé Baqués, to build the family's first winery. He married Teresa Camps Farré, an exceptional woman and an enthusiastic supporter who inspired her husband to launch, in 1921, the first sparkling wine under the "Juvé" brand. It was made in the underground cellars beneath the family home in San Sadurní d'Anoia.
