Mestres’ first documents as wine negociant are dated from 1312. In 1607, we find the first documents as vine growers and owners showing the vineyard: “Heretat Mas Coquet”. In the 1600s, they built the actual winery in San Sadurni d’Anoia, Penedes, Spain which was finished in 1861. They produced their first sparkling wine in 1925, and opened their first bottle to celebrate Christmas in 1928. Mestres was the first producer to register the word CAVA in 1959 aiming to inform the consumer that this was a sparkling wine aged in a cellar, using the words “vins de cava” (wines made in cave). They always used traditional grapes of their terroir: Xarello, Parellada and Macabeu, all of them hand harvested on their own 74 acres of vineyards, situated 680 feet above sea level, some of the oldest vineyards in the area. No insecticides or herbicides are used at the vineyard and pruning is carried out to reduce their vigor, therefore producing grapes of greater ripeness and intensity. Today, they still use traditional methods taught by their ancestors including long aging in caves, the youngest of their wines aged 20 months thus all are considered Reservas or Gran Reservas. The wines undergo a natural stabilization process during their long aging, so that the crystals that form can then be “degorge” along with the yeasts. That is why 100% of their production is aged using cork and for all bottles, riddling and degorge is done by hand, one-by-one, to ensure the highest quality.
