OF SEGURA VIUDAS

The Heredad, or the estate, dates back to the 11th century, in the middle of the Reconquista.

La Heredad:
a Thousand Years of History

The Segura Viudas Estate, La Heredad, in Sant Sadurni dates back to the 11th century, in the middle of the Reconquista period. The estate was an inhabited watchtower, and in the 13th century, the tower was converted into a Masía, a country house in Catalonia. From the Mas d’Aranyo to the church of San Salvador de Lavit, La Heredad has borne witness to many families and much of its history can today be seen in the walls of the estate. At the end of the 19th century, the various indigenous grape varieties flourishing in the vineyards surrounding the estate were noted for their winemaking potential beginning a new chapter.

IN OUR VINEYARD PRACTICES

We are committed to viticultural practices that preserve harmony and biodiversity in the vineyard.

A Mission to Preserve
Our Land and its Biodiversity

Crafting exceptional Cava is incomplete without an understanding and appreciation of the biodiversity of the Heredad. With this driving purpose, Segura Viudas is committed to studying and sustaining the rich and diverse ecosystem that has developed over centuries around our Estate. Today, we strive to promote and share this knowledge within our community. Bird watching during winter, flowers surrounding the vineyards in the spring, medicinal uses of wild vegetation are all nurtured experiences we share with our visitors.

A Hands on Commitment
to Sustainability

From our dedication to biodiversity comes commitment to sustainability across our winery and vineyards. We value the diverse relationships between the forest areas of our Heredad and vineyards that directly influence our winery and wines. To protect our rich ecological diversity, we have incorporated sustainable practices across our estate and winery. The wood from winter pruning is used to generate biomass with energy value that equals the annual consumption of heating oil used across our estate. We have also developed strategies to combat various elements, planted legumes and other vegetables to create a flora that controls the growth of the vines for more balanced production.
Our determination for biodiversity comes from concern for sustainability in the growing vines.

CRAFTING UNPARALLELED CAVA

Indigenous Grapes

D.O. Penedès is considered one of the most important centers of Mediterranean wine culture. This area has a history of being known as one of Spain's best-producing wine regions. The region lies between the coastal hills and the narrow plains of the Mediterranean coast, where the influence of the sea creates a mild, warm climate that is ideal for vineyards.

Segura Viudas has a deep respect for the regional terroir which includes various ancestral vineyards and indigenous vines. Grapes from indigenous white varieties, Xarel•lo, Macabeo and Parellada, are used to create our Cavas. The meticulous selection of the vineyards and their grapes provide the perfect balance and personality for Segura Viudas Cavas. 

Gabriel Suberviola,
Head Winemaker

Gabriel Suberviola oversees winemaking for the Segura Viudas winery in Spain. Like many winemakers in Spain, Gabriel, born in 1952, was raised in a family sustained and enriched by the Spanish wine industry. In the charming farm region of Navarra, Gabriel's spent his youth amongst the vineyards. His early experiences with the vines were by his father's side, farming the grapes that, once harvested, he and other neighborhood children would stomp barefoot each year. These defining experiences led Gabriel to continue his wine education. He first earned a degree in Chemical Sciences from Valencia University, followed by certification in Oenology and Viticulture at the School of Agronomist Engineers of Madrid.

Gabriel joined the Freixenet Group in 1980, starting as a laboratory director at Segura Viudas. In 1981, he became technical director for Castellblanch Cavas, also part of the Freixenet Group, where he remained until 1998. That year, Gabriel returned to Segura Viudas as Head Winemaker.

Acknowledging the evolution of his winemaking philosophy over the years, Gabriel emphasizes the importance of terroir in cultivating indigenous varietals. His philosophy is rooted in the vines, and he admits to learning new lessons each harvest that improves his viticultural techniques to continue to craft high quality Segura Viudas Cavas.
Gabriel’s youth was spent amongst the vineyards, replete with rustic family winemaking activities.

Methode Traditionelle

Segura Viudas produces artisan cava wines using the Methode Traditionelle process. The double fermentation process has been used for centuries to make sparkling wines, producing the highest quality wines with layers of complexity, fruit and more refined bubbles.

AGING ON LEES
After the primary fermentation and bottling, our wines undergo a second fermentation process referred to as aging on lees.

RIDDLING
The wines are aged from one to five years, placed on special racks at a 45 degree angle and undergo riddling so that the yeast sediments, or lees, can collect in the neck of the bottle.

DISGORGEMENT & DOSAGE
After aging, the lees are removed through the disgorging process. Immediately after disgorging, the bottles are topped off with the original base wine and sugar is added, a practice referred to as dosage.
