Maite Esteve. Passion for high quality wines and cava
In 1980, the Carreras, Esteve, Masana and Parera families from Penedès, set out to make wines and cavas creating the Vins El Cep winery in Sant Sadurní d’Anoia.
Producers of wines since 1980, they shared their knowledge to produce wines and cavas from the land.
With an interest in recovering the tradition and techniques of yesteryear, at the end of 2003 Vins el Cep began to apply the techniques of biodynamic agriculture, selecting the most suitable vineyards for macabeo, xarel·lo and parellada: old vines, calcareous soil and privileged location. In total, 5 ha of vineyards located in the properties of Can Prats, Can Miquel de les Planes and Can Castany, in Alt Penedés.
The General Manager of the winery, Maite Esteve, is the one who leads this reality with strength and feminine intuition, a unique case where 4 families of wine growers, who had vineyards since 1448, friends since always started the project 40 years ago. And it is one of the few companies in the cava sector, less than 20%, that are managed by women.
Maite wants to project the Penedés region to the world through its wines and cavas.
