More than 100 years of history ...
The Can Sala cellar was restored paying maximum respect to its history, while at the same implementing the technology used for cava production, developed by Buján over 40 years as Freixenet’s Director of Oenology. An exceptional cava reigned over by the old Coquard press, originating in the Champagne area, used to extract the grape juice, the only one used at Can Sala. All the movements of grape juice and wine are done by decantation.
A visit to Can Sala is a stroll through the past, a return to its origins and discovery of a tribute to those who made the birth of the Freixenet brand possible.
Casa Sala is the place where the first bottle of Freixenet cava was made over a century ago. Here, the co-founder of Freixenet, Dolors Sala, the mother of the current honorary Chairman, Mr Josep Ferrer i Sala, grew up.
Xarel•lo and Parellada of Casa Sala Gran Reserva come from carefully selected vines in Sant Quintí de Mediona. Only 20,000 bottles of this cava are produced annually, aged for seven years.
Sant Quintí de Mediona, in the heart of Penedés, holds the emblematic Casa Sala. The Mediona area has an altitude and slope at sea level, which gives more personality to the Casa Sala Gran Reserva.
