'Undoubtedly, the most impressive portfolio of Cavas that money can buy.' 
Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 

History & Philosophy
Five generations of vine growers and producers have been making still and sparkling wines since 1850 in Sant Sadurní d'Anoia in the heart of cava producing region just 30km south of Barcelona. Gramona has made every effort to refine the art of transforming wine to cava while respecting traditional techniques such as natural cork stoppers during ageing, traditional racks for riddling, and manual disgorgements.  

Today the fifth generation of the Gramona-Batlle family, with Jaume and Xavier Gramona at the head of the team of farmers, biologists, agronomists, oenologists, sommeliers and employees, is currently entrusted with an unwavering legacy - respect and passion for the land and wines.

The first Celler Batlle dates back to 1881. In 2001, following the building of a new winery on the estate, Gramona became a reference for sustainability and continue the journey towards organic viticulture and winemaking.

Agrology - Organic and Biodynamic
Gramona draw on the precepts of agrology - a branch of soil science based on the careful observation of factors influencing soil, a compendium of ecological and biological agriculture and the principles of biodynamics. They perform in-depth studies of their soil with the goal of relfecting the region's identity as faithfully as possible in the wines. They are working towards organic and sustainable viticulture and use measure such as use of geothermal energy and recycled rainwater. 

  

Excellence Through Slow Ageing
The elegance, creaminess, freshness, balance, complexity and character are the essence of the cavas and can be attributed to the long bottle ageing - a common denominator in the world's best sparkling wines. Gramona have some of the regions oldest vineyards where Xarel-lo has been grown for over 150 years and other varieties such as Chardonnay and Pinot Noir excel. 

Vines
50 hectares of vines, which lie between the DO for Cava and Penedés, are divided into different plots offering Gramona a wide range of possibilities. La Plana is one of the region's oldest vineyards, where the Xarel-lo grape has been grown for over 150 years, while Mas Escorpí, at a higher altitude, is the ideal location for varieties as Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Gewürztraminer. Gramona's very best Macabeos and Xarel-los come from the Font Jui property.
