  • About Oriol Rossell

    The Oriol Rossell estate is located in a protected area of the Alt Peneds. The origins of the domain date back to the late 16th century, evidenced by references to the names Cassanyes and Rossell, found in family documents of the time. The two families came together in 1811 through the marriage of Damia Rossell to Madrona Cassanyes, heiress to the family estate. The tradition continued from father to son and led to the creation of "Oriol Rossell. The family has been making cava for 30 years. All this time they have strived to uphold time-honored traditions and offer the best quality wines. The company has limited production and, unlike many of its peers, prefers manual to machine production.

    Harvesting is also done by hand in the cool of the early morning. This allows an initial selection of grapes to be carried out in the vineyard at Oriol Rossell. The grapes are transported in small 20-kg crates so as not to damage the fruit. Because they arrive at the winery whole, they retain all their characteristics. From generation to generation, they oversee careful handling of the vineyards and winemaking. Organic cultivation in the vineyard, slow and well-controlled fermentation in the cellar and finding the right grape composition are the examples.
