Pioneers in planting this variety in the Penedés area, the Garraf mace, stony, clayey and calcareous soils, with contributions from marine fossils.
The history of Can Ràfols dels Caus began in 1979. Carlos Esteva decided to move to his grandfather's estate located in Garraf (Barcelona). Esteva's arrival in Garraf was a revolution, planting new varieties and cultivation methods.
Mr. Esteva decided to take a big step with the construction of a new winery that would allow him to better work on the microvinifications he was carrying out with different grapes and plots on the farm. This new winery is fully embedded in the environment of the Garraf Massif, integrated into the landscape and designed at different levels in order to facilitate gravity vinification.
