It was at the turn of last century when the Masachs family started to cultivate grapes in their estate located in Vilafranca del Penedès, a wine area par excellence, where the growing of grapes had already been introduced in times of the Roman Empire.
D. Josep Masachs Llorach, a man with strong convictions, great character and dedicated since his childhood to the growing of grapes, founded Cavas Masachs within the decade of the twenties producing cava in the best tradition of craftsmanship and with a limited production, meant basically, for his own consumption and to make it known to his closest friends. Later, his son, D. Josep Masachs Juvé, went on with his father’s job under the same policy of very limited production and craftsmanship combined with hard work with the aim to improve the quality of his cavas.
In 1977, Josep y Joan Masachs started a new guideline and launched a new line of cava to the market based on the experience and know-how of their ancestors. Little by little, the excellent quality of the cavas made by these young producers was known both in the domestic and international market, thus to reward their efforts and dedication. As a result of these achievements and the growth in the demand for their products, the production facilities used by their grandfather became too small and outdated. This compelled Masachs to set up new facilities in 1985 in the Monsarra estate, which is situated in the municipality of Torrelles de Foix and provided with the ideal structure for the making of the best cavas.
Nowadays, Cavas Masachs continue the production of cavas and wines n their Monsarra estate with the same enthusiasm in order to improve the quality initiated by its founders.
