Vilarnau (literally translated as The House of Arnau) made its first aged cavas in the town of Sant Sadurni d'Anoia in 1949. Sixty years later the wines are now made in a state of the art winery, whose sleek minimalist design couldn't be further from the fortified Romanesque house from which the company takes its name. The estate lies at approximately 250 metres above sea level and enjoys a Mediterranean climate, shielded by the breathtaking Montserrat Mountains to the north and the Litoral range to the south. Specialising in long-aged cavas, Vilarnau has over two and a half million bottles in stock, stored in temperature controlled cellars to ensure consistency of style and quality year after year.
Damia Deas has been in charge of winemaking at Vilarnau since 1985. He has personally supervised the planting of the vineyards and the construction of the spectacular bodega. Its sleek simplicity and sympathy with the surrounding landscape reflects Damia's interest in architecture, in which he is also qualified. Damia is passionate about Precision Viticulture, a practice where each vine is treated individually, achieving the ultimate balance between the canopy, the number of bunches and water retention, resulting in perfect ripening of the grapes.

Vilarnau is a prestigious, finely crafted cava with an avant-garde spirit, produced on a small and very exclusive scale. The state of the art winery uses the most modern vinification and ageing processes. Vilarnau cava dates from 1949 and is located in the municipality of Sant Sadurni d'Anoia, capital of the Cava Denomination of Origen in the heart of Catalonia. The name refers to the ancient Domvs, the fortified house of the Vila Arnau family, which formed part of the Subirats castle.
Vilarnau is situated 250m above sea level. These higher altitudes mean that the grapes undergo a slower maturation process producing wines with higher acidity which is ideal for the aged cava's for which Vilarnau has become famous. Protected by the cold winds of the Montserrat Mountains and to the south by the Serrelada coastline, the vineyard at Vilarnau enjoys a Mediterranean climate. The extreme changes in temperature between day and night favour greater concentrations of the aromas of the fruit.
The Trepat and Pinot Noir undergo maceration in contact with the skins for a short period of time to extract colour and aromas. The grapes are cooled and fermented in stainless steel tanks. The wine is then blended and bottled for the secondary fermentation which takes place in the underground cellar. The wine is aged for more than 15 months on its lees.
