Like their ancestors, Eudald Massana Noya is the ninth generation of wine producers to closely work with the land in Sant Pau d’Ordal (Subirats).

Codorníu

The Codorníu family’s wine business goes back to the middle of the 16th century. A document of that period states that the family had several machines and implements relating to the wine industry. In 1659 Anna Codorníu married Miguel Raventós and the families, each with a long wine tradition, were united. Years later, in 1872, Josep Raventós produced cava for the first time in Spain using the “Traditional Method” and established a completely new industry in the Penedés region.
