Vallformosa Cava is a brand with more than 150 years of experience in making wines and cava of the greatest quality. Established in 1865 in Vilobí del Penedès, southwest of Barcelona, in the heart of the Cava D.O, Vallformosa creates cavas of premium quality, which display an unconventional, singular character of their own. These are cavas with a youthful spirit for enjoying at any time, enhanced by the care taken to achieve the utmost quality.
Key to this approach is the close relationship between Vallformosa and its grape suppliers, of which 500 growers are members of the ‘Soc Vallformosa’ club. This initiative offers growers support and benefits throughout the year, such as technical advisory services, the implementation of industry best practices, training, tastings, meteorological warnings via a specially developed app, and phytosanitary alerts.
To enhance this relationship further, Vallformosa promises fair payment terms to its growers, paying 30 days from receiving the grapes at harvest, whilst other wineries will often pay 30 days after rating the wine, in approximately February the following year.
Vallformosa has been working for a long time towards achieving the maximum expression in organic grapes and is painstakingly respectful of origin and the environment. The company has an agreement in place with the Pla de Manlleu Farmers’ Association (AAPM) to promote the ‘+500’, a vine-growing area in the Upper Penedès, at more than 500 metres altitude, which yields slower-ripening, premium-quality grapes for Vallformosa’s wines and cavas.
Vallformosa pioneered the implementation of environmental measures and was one of the first companies to install its own biological wastewater treatment plant. 100% of Vallformosa’s electricity consumption comes from renewable energy, 99% of all the waste generated is recycled or reused, and 40% less water than the industry standard is consumed during the production process. Vallformosa uses lighter, low density bottles that save raw materials and reduce CO2 during transport, both for the glass processing plant and the final consumer.
