Wine cellar or Cava
Ruta del Vi del Penedès

A privileged situation. An exceptional environment A careful preparation. A rigorous respect for the environment and a human team excited about their work. A small and avant-garde artisanal cava

The noble family Vilarnau settled in the s. XII in this privileged land of Penedès. Vilarnau is the etymological result of Vila Arnau, that is to say, the "country house or Domus" of the Arnau, that was in the stately demarcation of the term of the Castle of Subirats and where already in the 12th century vineyards were cultivated. Albert de Vilarnau, name that currently receives the most exclusive cava of the brand, was a very unique character that made the power of the family grow and, included in the s. XIV was one of the patrons of the church Santa María de Vilarnau.

The first cellar with Vilarnau label was born in 1949, when the owner family started to market the wine cellar that the vineyards planted in the "Can Petit and Les Planes de Vilarnau" vineyard had produced since ancient times. Since then, Vilarnau has been associated with a cava of noble personality, elaborated under demanding quality standards and that takes maximum care of the detail.

In 1982, he became part of the González Byass family of wineries. The new cava was located in the center of the farm and its inauguration took place in October 2005. The design of the modern cava is by the architect Luis González. In it, straight lines predominate and highlights the perfect adaptation to the beautiful Mediterranean environment through abundant stained glass. Three are the main integrating elements of the landscape: water, which borders the entire building and comes from rainwater, glass from the window and oak wood from the exterior walls. The interior has been largely designed by the renowned artist Antonio Miró, who has created a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

By adhering to the Biosphere commitment, Vilarnau works under the principles of guarantee for an economic, socio-cultural and environmental balance committed to sustainability.
