HISTORY OF THE WINERY

Bodega Vallformosa
is a family-run winery founded in 1865 by Francisco José Domènech in Vilobí, Penedès, a small Barcelona population very close to Vilafranca del Penedès. Masía de Vallformosa refers back to the year 977, in a document where the attorney of Prince Sanmartí mentions a Masía de Vallefermosa.

In 1887, the phylloxera hit the area of the Penedès badly, destroying practically all of the vines that were planted there. Bodega Vallformosa is one of the first wineries than began to plant new American vines that were not contaminated by phylloxera.
This helped increase the prestige of the winery as, in 1904; it received recognition with a visit from King Alfonso XIII.

During the Spanish Civil War, the farmhouse was occupied and partially destroyed. Once the war ended, José Domènech Torné reconstructed the farmhouse and they began to produce the first bottles of cava under the Vallformosa name.

During the 70s, the Domènech family acquired new vineyards extending over all of Penedès. Today, the Grupo Valformosa are present in four Spanish Denominations of Origin; Penedès, Cava, Catalunya and La Rioja. Its products are in more than 50 countries such as Europe, Asia, Africa and America.


PHILOSOPHY OF THEIR WORK

Bodegas Vallformosa uses grapes from both their own vineyards and those from other farmers, who they have had agreements with for more than 15 years, and under the supervision of the technical team, throughout year, they check both the fields and the vineyards.

Some of the vines are planted at an altitude of 500 meters above sea level, vineyards with a difference of temperature between day and night during the summer have slower ripening grapes, which creates a lot of aroma, taste and colour.

Bodegas Vallformosa is a mixed balance between tradition and modernity.
Tradition that respects knowledge and shows that there has been five generations of the family making the cava and modernity is shown through the implementation of new technologies.

Today, for example, they use a refractometer. An instrument that helps measure the ripening of the grapes for the optimum vintage point.
The controlled fermentation in done in refrigerated tanks or the Diam cork, a cork known for its perfect homogeneity, helps preserve the aromas. These are other examples of how modernity mixes with tradition.

The entire production process is subject to diverse quality controls. From the vines and grapes to the final quality of their bottles.

Vallformosa is a company that respects the environment. The proof is the proper biological treatment for the waste water or the use of renewable energy and a high commitment to recycling.
