Vilarnau made its first aged cavas in the town of Sant Sadurni d’Anoia in 1949. Sixty years later, the wines are now made in a state of the art winery, whose sleek minimalist design couldn’t be further removed from the fortified Romanesque house from which the company takes its name. The estate lies at approximately 250 metres above sea level, and specialises in long-aged cavas, stored in temperature controlled cellars to ensure consistency of style and quality year after year.
Eva, Vilarnau’s winemaker has been working with the company since 1996.

This format really adds another dimension to wine appreciation and enjoyment. Two wines are tasted with each course — starter / main-course / cheese / dessert, giving you the opportunity to compare & contrast.”
