Located in the tiny municipality of Sant Esteve Sesrovires, within the Alto Penedés D.O. region of Catalonia, Cava producer Roger Goulart was founded in 1882.
Throughout its more than 135-year history, Roger Goulart has earned a distinguished reputation for the production of traditional method sparkling wines and cavas primarily produced from the autochthonous grape variety Xarel-lo, which provides the character and structure necessary for the long aging of Reserva and Gran Reserva cavas.
Housed in a stately Art Nouveau building that represents one of the most unique ‘Masia’ in Alto Penedés, it is within the winery’s stone walls dating back to the XVIII century that lays the secret for elaborating Roger Goulart’s exceptional cavas. Bo‑le fermentation takes place in a series of underground cellars or ‘caves’ at 30 meters (100 feet) below sea level, similar to the ‘caves’ of the world’s best Champagne houses.
These underground cellars connected by tunnels provide the natural and constant ideal conditions for fermentation and bottle aging.
Roger Goulart was one of the first wineries in Spain to produce traditional method wines with extra long bottle aging under these conditions and today remains committed to these measures of quality.
