The past 15th September, the Jané Ventura's cellar brought together more than 200 people, including customers, distributors, press and friends –some from different European countries – in what was the main event of the centenary of the founding of the winery and its connection to the world of wine.
The Event took place in Finca Mas Vilella, a Catalan farmhouse located in La Bisbal del Penedès, property of Jané Ventura's family and surrounded by vineyards.
The event started with the welcoming speech of Gerard Jané, who is the fourth generation winemaker and current manager of the winery Jané Ventura, and his father Benjamí Jané Ventura, who is from the previous generation of winemakers and who opted to produce quality wines, bottled and under a certificate of origin.
After the speech, the guests toasted with 'cava' from the centenary "1914 de Jané Ventura Gran Reserva Vintage 2007", a 'cava' elaborated for the occasion, a limited edition for the centenary, which included the production of 1914 bottles and 500 Magnum.
In a showroom format, the guests enjoyed a tasting of 30 wines and 'cavas' from previous years and special editions, some of them from the 'familiar collection' and that they could taste following a recommended order.
The association Terra i Taula, a union of producers and chefs from Baix Penedès, were in charge of elaborating the food for the occasion, with some "tapas" and "coques de recapte" typical from the area.
Likewise, it could be tasted a scoop, Malvasia de Sitges "dolça 2013", which is scheduled to release this upcoming fall.
Four generations of the family have experienced first hand the great revolution of viticulture and oenology in our country.
