Celler Carles Andreu
Since the 18th century, the Andreu family has been cultivating their vineyards. They have in their family archive, the purchase document of the Celdoni de Forès farmhouse, in 1781. The family currently owns about 80 hectares of vineyards in the Conca de Barberà, where the traditional varieties of the region (Macabeu, Parellada and Trepat) are mainly grown.
The vineyards are distributed between the municipalities of Pira, Forès, Sarral, Solivella, Barberà de la Conca and Montblanc. In 1991, Carles Andreu, continuing the family tradition, launched the cava that bears his name. It was a small cellar located in the village of Pira and located in the old manor house of Cal Celdoni, taking advantage of the containers where the wine was fermented in the past, respecting the vaults and architectural forms of the house, built in 1796.
The business is now under the direction of Bernat Andreu, who is heavily involved in promoting the local area and grape varieties, as well as working with neighbours to drive up the standards of winegrowing and making, finding the most appropriate methods for their unique grapes.
In 2004 they launched the new winery on Carrer Sant Sebastià de Pira, with new plantings around the facility. The new winery consists of an underground cellar, a production area, a laboratory, warehouses, offices, a tasting and tasting room and a reception and sales area.
Now alongside the cavas, the family produce an exciting range of still wines from the Trepat grape, a speciality of the Conca de Barberà region.
