Castell d’Or, the union of 16 wineries
Castell d’Or is the heritage of the first cooperatives founded at the end of the s. XIX and beginning of the s. XX. Currently, we unite a total of 16 cooperatives, which represent 2,200 grape farmer´s families who work with love and respect for nature. Since 2005, in Castell d’Or, we select the best grapes and have modern facilities to create an exclusive product of a premium category.
Castell d’Or’s vineyards are situated in Comtats de Barcelona, an area in Catalonia with diverse landscapes, mainly gentle hills with picturesque valleys in between. This region has a long tradition of winemaking, dating back more than 2,000 years. The grapes for our cavas come from plots with different microclimates. Some vineyards are situated almost at sea level, others at up to 750 m above sea level.
Big amount of harvested grapes gives the possibility to make selection and take just the best quality bunches.
