ABOUT: Vallformosa is a family-owned winery, now managed by the fifth generation of the Domènech family. The winery was established in 1865 in Vilobí del Penedès, southwest of Barcelona in the heart of the Cava D.O. appellation. The vineyards are located in a valley between the Mediterranean Sea and the Catalan Pre-coastal Mountain Range. It is considered a prized land with unique characteristics for viniculture, particularly with the white varietals that make up Spain’s best Cavas. The family name first appeared in local history as far back as the 10th Century. In 1865, Don Francisco Jose Domènech planted vines on the land that became the family’s first vineyards.

HISTORY: After Phylloxera destroyed almost all the vines in Spain in the late 1880’s, Vallformosa was among the pioneering wineries to replant non-contaminated rootstock. In the late 1930s, the Spanish Civil War erupted and part of winery was destroyed during fierce fighting near the end of the war. In 1940, when the Domènech family returned to rebuild the winery, Don Jose Domènech Torne (the son of Don Francisco) produced the first three bottles of Vallformosa Cava. Since the beginning, the Domènech family has been passionate about their wines and, even today, follow the teachings of their ancestors that the “soul of the wine is in the soil and in their family roots.”

TASTING NOTES: Cherry color with ruby tones. Fine persistent bubbles and white mousse. Elegant aromas of Flowers and Red Fruit (Strawberry and Raspberry), with notes of cask aging. Rounded and sublte on the palate, with fine bubbles and foam. In the mouth it is fresh and bright, with a pleasant finish.

Wine Enthusiast Review: "Crushed Minerals, Iodine and Saline aromas accent dusty Citrus scents. This is fresh and subtle on the palate, with a smooth bubble bead that wouldn't shake a mouse. Flavors of Raspberry, Cantaloupe and Cocoa Powder finish mild and Toasty. This is a step up from most rosé Cavas. 89 pts"
