”Ennoble” is the term used by experts to describe the traditional action of adding different varieties of grape to a vineyard’s stock. It was this that, in the nineteenth centuries, saved our vines from the phylloxera plague and gave rise to the current richness of the vineyards of the Penedes. The term acquires special meaning at Cavas Hill. Its beginnings date back to the seventeenth century when an English immigrant named Joseph Hill began growing vines at the ”El Maset” estate. Over the course of many generations, his descendents continued with the family business until over one hundred twenty-five years ago, in 1887, when Cavas Hill was incorporated as a company dedicated to the cultivation of vines and the production of wine. In 1918, our first underground cellars were built, and production of our ”methode champenoise”, wine –now known as “cava”– commenced. Thus it is that, today, our wines enjoy the great prestige conferred only upon top-quality products. The area is blessed with an exceptionally favourable climate. A perfect balance between the amount of sun and rain, and its proximity to the Mediterranean, at a height of 200m above sea level, means that these lands enjoy a truly privileged situation. Added to this, tradition and technology –that is, centuries of know-how– careful production in the hands of expert winemakers, ageing in the silence and shadows of our cellars, combined with the most advanced winemaking techniques, continue with the natural process of these excellent products. From the vine’s first shoots to bottling, the entire process is strictly controlled. Modern, well-equipped facilities and a range of cellars running under the vineyards, provide a guarantee of quality for the ageing of Cavas Hill’s wines and cavas.
