The company has belonged to the Mascaró family for 3 generations. The wineries and distillery of the family are in Vilafranca de Penedès, 48 Km from Barcelona.
The founder of the company, Don Narciso Mascaró Marcé, was born in 1894 at the heart of a family devoted to buying and selling wines. In 1946, Narciso began to trade products under the Mascaró trademark with the support of his son Antonio Mascaró who initiated of the export activity.
In 1988, Montserrat, the daughter of Antonio Mascaró, joined the company. Today the company continues to be completely run by Ms. Montserrat.
For the production of Cavas, the winery owns two properties, named “Mas Miquel” and “El Castell”, where all the grapes for making the Cavas are picked by hand and collected in small crates so they can be taken to the cellar.
The bunches of grapes are pressed in their entirety and only the free-run juice is conserved and fermented at a controlled temperature to obtain a high-quality Cava wine base.
At Mascaró we believe that ageing over lees provides the Cava with a special quality. That is why we produce Cavas Reserva, aged for more than 15 months, and Gran Reserva, with a minimum ageing of 30 months.
