About the Winery:
A pioneer in traditional method sparkling wine production in Spain, Roger Goulart has represented the most authentic taste of cava since 1882.

Roger Goulart is synonymous with high quality, elegance and craftsmanship. Located in Sant Esteve Sesrovires in the Alto Penedés region, the winery combines Ignasi Mas I Morell’s stunning modernist architecture with more than a kilometre of traditional underground cellars: which is where the magic happens.

Roger Goulart’s Cavas are the fruits of a centuries-old tradition. A unique and exclusive producer of sparkling wines made from the local Xarel-lo grape variety, bottle-fermented in cellars 30 metres below ground, similar to the best champagne cellars in the world.

These cave tunnels provide the perfect, consistent, natural conditions for secondary fermentation in bottles: a consistent temperature of 14º – 15 ºC; 85% moisture and complete stillness, essential for letting the character and structure of the Xarel-lo settle prior to tasting.
