WHO ARE THEY?
Oriol Rossell is a small family company, dedicated to the production of quality wines and Cavas made exclusively from grapes grown on our 85-hectare estate.
The secret of our Cellar is our care and respect for the environment, as well as our winegrowing traditions handed down from generation to generation.
References to the surnames of “Cassanyes” and “Rossell ” can be found in family documents dating back to 16th century.
The vineyards from which the Oriol Rossell cavas are produced are on the Cal Cassanyes Estate; a unified estate of 85 hectares which stretches across both the Alt Penedès and Baix Penedès. The fact that the Estate is surrounded by the Prelitoral mountains to the North and coastal mountains to the South, as well as being a few kilometres from the sea, results in a very special microclimate which gives character to our wines.
WHAT’S GOING ON?
Cal Cassanyes is an old, ancestral manor house, dating back to at least the 17th century (the date “1637” is found engraved on a stone). The wine cellar, in Art Nouveau style, was built in 1908. Wine growers and producers for centuries, they have been producing cava for the last thirty years, always endeavouring to obtain the maximum quality cava following time-honoured traditions.
