THE BEGINNING OF OUR STORY
Located outside Barcelona, Spain, Heredad Segura Viudas is an iconic boutique winery, quietly basking in the sunny vineyards of the ancient wine region of Penedès. The origins of the Heredad have been traced back to the 11th century- the time of the Iberian Crusades -La Reconquista.
In the mid-20th century, cava became recognized as a revolution in the world of “champagne.” It grew to become an international reference of sparkling wine in its own right, recognized for quality and diversity.
The farmhouse and estate of Can Esbert de Raïm were bought by the Segura brothers in the 1950s. New caves and wineries were soon built and the latest machinery installed. The brothers began marketing their own cava. In 1969 they proudly launched the iconic Segura Viudas Heredad premium cava.
Reserva Heredad was created to express style, in the world of top of the range sparkling wines. We make it with the objective of offering an elegant, versatile Cava. To do this, we select only the very best wines from each vintage, which will then age in bottle, in contact with the lees, for more than 24 months. This ageing ends when the winery expert gives every bottle the magic touch with the last “poignettage” or shake of the wrist, which intensifies the contact of the lees with the wine, and creates a more complex bouquet.
