OUR HISTORY

Our history

Since 1865 the Domènech family has worked lands in Penedès with passion to obtain the best fruit of the vineyards. Francisco José Domènech (1839-1909) was the founder of the winemaking tradition in the family and the first to seek perfection of a well-done work.

The phylloxera devastates the entire Penedès vineyards. The cellar of José Domènech Soler (1864-1958) is one of the pioneers in replanting uncontaminated vineyards. The winery gained enormous prestige in the region that ended with the recognition of King Alfonso XIII after visiting the winery in 1904. In 1905, after retrieved the vineyard in the area, José Domènech Torné (1896-1957) acquires all vineyards of the Masia called “La Sala".
