  • Discover the history that marked the path and the spirit of Cava at Fassina de can Guineu, an old distillery that houses the current Cava Interpretation Centre. Find out, in an interactive way, the secrets of the quality of cava as an sparkling wine, delve into the beginnings of the Cava industry, its values, the effort and perseverance of its protagonists, and everything to do with the world of Cava.

    The first cava with a Vilarnau label was born in 1949 when the Cuscó family began selling cava from grapes grown from the ancient vineyards of the Can Petit estate and Les Planes de Vilarnau.

    Placed amidst an incomparable enclave, Vilarnau is surrounded by vineyards, Mediterranean forests and the wonderful views of the Montserrat mountains. Visitors can experience at first-hand the different grape varieties grown on the estate and the complexity of integrated agriculture used. The architecture and design of the cellar, with its long straight lines that combined with the vineyards, inviting visitors to both abstraction and enjoyment of nature and cava. The interior was designed by the famous artist Antoni Miró, who created a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

    Until recently, Vilarnau cavas was reserved for those who knew about the family business. However, Vilarnau crosses borders today with the intention of sharing its history and excellent cavas to everyone.
