ABOUT THIS PRODUCER:
Castell d’Age is the creation of three generations of women in the Junyent family, located in the Beguda Baixa, in the heart of the Alt Penedés region. Anne Marie is a pioneer in introducing organic farming in the region. With the addition of her daughter Olivia Junyent to the business, they are now certified organic and biodynamic agriculture, a method that respects the relationship between humans and earth.
On the southern slope of the mysterious, sacred mountain of Montserrat. In the small village of La Beguda Baixa. A very special land, destined to uphold the long-standing traditions of our ancestors. Yet, at the same time, open to new initiatives. With a single objective: to produce exceptional wines and cavas.
It was all started by Aurèlia Figueras. A woman ahead of her time. An intelligent woman, she knew how to breathe life into the lands that had belonged to her family for over 50 years.
Anne Marie Comtesse was the inspiration behind the creation of the cellars, located in an 18th Century country house, at the end of the 1980’s. Champion of products from the land. A fighter. Committed to the environment. She pioneered the introduction of organic farming.
Olivia Junyent is the daughter and granddaughter of two exceptional women. Respecting the family ethos of doing things the traditional way. A fighter. Along with her siblings, she represents current trends in the field of organic viticulture.
