Heirs of a family tradition historically linked to viticulture and with three
generations, Maria Casanovas was born with the purpose of making authentic, original, personal, unique and innovative cavas, which represent the expression of a land.
Our story begins in Sant Sadurní, in a small winery in the center of town, from 1984 to 2011, when we begin another stage on the farm, located 1 km from Sant Jaume Sesoliveres, Piera.
Currently, Jordi, Jacint and Rosa Maria Carafí Casanovas, brothers and partners, together with the younger generation, Aurora, are working to keep the cavas within the most prestigious in the Penedès.

TRADITIONAL METHOD COMMITMENT
Maria Casanovas is distinguished in the art of blending, following the champenoise method, where we establish a traditional elaboration of the circulation with the addition of yeasts, which allow us a fermentation at a temperature of 12-14 ºC creating a good incorporation of carbon into the wine, guaranteeing the formation of the fine bubbles so characteristic of our cavas.
The aging process will last between 1 and 5 years, depending on the type of cava, where during this period, the yeast will release the primary aromas in the early stages and evolve providing more complexity, ripe fruit, more fat in the mouth, intense flavors, exciting ...
We make our cavas with the local varieties of Penedès, Xarel·lo, Macabeu and Parellada, and we are pioneers in the incorporation of foreign varieties such as Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
True to our philosophy, Maria Casanovas, we only make cavas brut nature.
