About the Winery:
The Ca N’Estruc estate dates back to 1548. Here on the slopes of the holy mountain of Montserrat in Esparreguera – half an hour away from Barcelona – Winemaker Siscu Martí cultivates the 22 hectares in property, located at an altitude of 165 metres planted with the white varieties Chardonnay, White Grenache and Muscat; and the Syrah, Petit Verdot, Garnacha Tinta and Tannat.
Francisco Martí has dedicated his life to his vineyards. The estate has a unique microclimate, benefitted and sheltered by the magical Montserrat mountain – protecting vines from the cold north winds. With cool summers, mild winters and an average annual temperature of 14ºC – it creates almost perfect conditions that’s an envy to all winemakers!
