Centuries of distinguished history in one flute of Segura Viudas Cava

Amongst the centuries of classic Spanish architecture, blue skies, rolling green hills, rivers, and rows of vineyards in Barcelona, Spain, you will find the estate of Can Esbert de Raïm, synonymous with the award winning Segura Viudas Cava brand.

A former embattled fortress to now an international enotourism destination, the beautiful stone manor with over ten centuries of history was bought by the Segura brothers in the 1950s. In 1969 they launched the iconic Heredad premium cava.

As french varieties of champagne had become fashionable around the world, it was forgotten that Spain is blessed with a variety of quality grapes indigenous to the region. By the mid 20th century, cava found its place on the international stage for sparkling wines.

Today the vineyard produces one of the most awarded cava brands internationally, using the traditional double fermentation process. This process has been used for centuries to produce sparkling wines, ensuring complexity and highly refined bubbles.

When planning your next gathering, the extravagant Cava options from Segura Viudas are essential. The brand’s longstanding history and product versatility make hosting simple, and will leave guests admiring your taste.
