Cavas Masachs Mas Fi Brut
D. Josep Masachs Llorach, a man with strong convictions, great character and dedication to growing grapes since his childhood founded Cavas Masachs in his 20's, producing cava in the best tradition of craftsmanship and with a limited production, meant basically, for his own consumption and to make it known to his closest friends. Later, his son, D. Josep Masachs Juvé, went on with his father’s job under the same policy of very limited production and craftsmanship combined with hard work to improve the quality of his cavas.
In 1977, Josep y Joan Masachs started a new guideline and launched a new line of cava to the market based on the experience and know-how of their ancestors. Little by little, the excellent quality of the cavas made by these young producers was known both in the domestic and international market, thus to reward their efforts and dedication.
As a result of these achievements and the growth in the demand for their products, the production facilities used by their grandfather became too small and outdated. This compelled Masachs to set up new facilities in 1985 in the Monsarra estate, which is situated in the municipality of Torrelles de Foix and provided with the ideal structure for the making of the best cavas.
Nowadays, Cavas Masachs continues its production of cavas and wines in their Monsarra estate with the same enthusiasm in order to improve the quality initiated by its founders.
A superior source of white grapes for the production of Spain’s prized sparkling wine, Cava, the Penedes region is part of Catalunya and sits just south of Barcelona. Medio Penedès is the most productive source of the Cava grapes, Macabeo, Xarel-lo, and Parellada. Penedes also grows Garnacha and Tempranillo (here called Ull de Llebre in Catalan) for high quality reds and rosès.
Equal parts festive and food-friendly, sparkling wine is beloved for its lively bubbles and appealing aesthetics. Though it is often thought of as something to be reserved for celebrations, sparkling wine can be enjoyed on any occasion—and might just make the regular ones feel a bit more special. Sparkling wine is made throughout the world, but can only be called “Champagne” if it comes from the Champagne region of France. Other regions have their own specialties, like Prosecco in Italy and Cava in Spain. Sweet or dry, white or rosé (or even red!), lightly fizzy or fully sparkling, there is a style of bubbly wine to suit every palate.
The bubbles in sparkling wine are formed when the base wine undergoes a secondary fermentation, trapping carbon dioxide inside the bottle or fermentation vessel. Champagne, Cava and many other sparkling wines (particularly in the New World) are made using the “traditional method,” in which the second fermentation takes place inside the bottle. With this method, dead yeast cells remain in contact with the wine during bottle aging, giving it a creamy mouthful and toasty flavors. For Prosecco, the carbonation process occurs in a stainless steel tank to preserve the fresh fruity and floral aromas preferred for this style of wine.
