Characteristics. Deep, brioche; serious and long.
More than 20 Ha of vineyards, in the mild and enchanting Penedès region just 50 km far from the vibrant heart of Barcelona, give birth to our cavas. Mas Gomà estate is composed by a main manor founded in 1724, and a little charming church named Sant Valentí, built back in the 1135.
The estate is located at Les Cabanyes, at the heart of the Penedès zone, an historical and traditional viticulture area.
This estate has unique characteristics to make long aging cavas due to its terroirs with high calcareous component, its orientation and its old vines, over 60 years, that provide high quality grapes with low yields.
In 1916 Josep Torras i Bages passed away and two years later the Vendrell family bought the whole estate. Apart from growing grape vines, in the thirties Joan Vendrell Ràfols with his son Joan Vendrell Via built a cellar next to the Mas Gomà manor to produce wine. New restricted regulations at the beginning of the seventieth turn this project off, but not his love for winemaking.
As in families who cares about heritage and tradition, his son has been named after him and so his grandson: respectively Joan Manel Vendrell Ferret and Joan Vendrell Olivella.
Joan Manel Vendrell Ferret worked at Mas Gomà estate since he was young. He pampered the lush green vineyard and he grew up with the passion for winemaking. He studied enology and since then he started working as a winemaker in some of the top companies of the zone.After 25 years of expertise in winemaking, in 2009 Joan Manel decided to finally dive into his dream of life: produce his own long-aging cavas from Mas Gomà estate, together with his son Joan.As the other family members, Joan also grew up immersed into the viticulture world. Meanwhile, he studied business administration and got specialized in international management. He worked as a product manager in the marketing department of companies as L’Oréal or Rowenta, but he never forgot his roots and his family heritage of winemaking. Now, father and son onboard their project together, with a refreshed view on the sector and all the rigorous and meticulous professionalism of both wine making and business administration, with an healthy sparkle of family care and a “three-generation-dream” to pursue.
