About the producer

Ramon Canals was founded by Miquel Canals Ollé whose family links to vine growing and production in Penedès dating back as far as 1903. In 1975, Miquel Canals Ollé and his son Ramon Canals Llaverol, an oenologist by profession, pooled their resources and decided to produce their first bottled wine and cava. The climate here is mild Mediterranean, with average annual rainfall of 465-515 litres per square metre. Soils are calcareous clay. Grapes are hand-harvested in September. Today their children, Ramon and Marta Canals are ready to drive the company forward while maintaining traditional winemaking practices. The experience of three generations dedicated exclusively to the quality and integrity of their wines is now producing cavas with distinct finesse and complexity. The cultural heritage is clearly evident in their own museum housing more than 4,500 exhibits related to vine cultivation and the production of wine and cava. Nowadays, this family-run company produces wine in four different wine regions: DO Penedès, DO Cava, DOQ Priorat and DO Montsant.
