3rd segment of this weeks Show: Wine Education: Albert de Vilarnau is 8th Largest Bodega Producer in D.O. Cava, Spain - Felipe González-Gordon Terry
 
The Vilarnau cavas date from 1949 and are located in the town centre of Sant Sadurní’ d’Anoia. They were purchased by the Gonzalez Byass group in 1982. Vilarnau is situated 6 km outside Sant Sadurni d’Anoia, in the highest point of the region, Espiells, some 250 metres above sea level. High altitudes contribute to a slower maturation of the grape, which produces wines with higher acidity. As most Vilarnau Cavas are aged cavas, this high acidity contributes to a more balanced aging. Protected from the cold winds of the Pyrenees by the Montserrat Mountains and in the south by the Serrelada coastline, the vineyard enjoys a Mediterranean climate. Most cava grapes in Sant Sadurni d’Anoia are grown on deep clayish chalky soils with good water retention.
