Vilafranca Del Penedes, Cava

Mascaro is a small family winery and distillery west of Barcelona in the original heart of Cava country. While these days cava can be produced anywhere in the country, the small quality producers are still to be found around Vilafranca. Montserrat Mascaro is the elegant and exacting winemaker. All the fruit is estate grown, from high altitude vineyards (400 meters) where Parellada thrives. The house style is elegant and dry, complex from long ageing on the lees. While the aromatic varieties Xarello and Macabeo are also grown, the emphasis is always on the mineral and fine Parellada.
