Dominio de la Vega
Dominio de la Vega is a privately owned winemaking concern, based in San Antonio, making still wines and Cava of the highest quality.
Vineyard Area : 68 hA.
Grapes Grown : Macabeo, Chardonnay, Bobal, Cabernet Sauvignon, Garnacha, Tempranillo.
Although nearly all of Spains Cava is produced in Penedes near Barcelona there are certain areas outside of this authorised for production also.
Dominio are based in one of these areas, Utiel-Requena, an area inland from Valencia with a semi-Meditteranean, semi continental climate.
Dominio's vineyards are planted at up to 907M above sea level on sandy soils mixed with clay and marl.
There are no Parellada or Xarel-lo grapes used with white Cava’s based on Macabeo and Chardonnay and rosados on Garnacha and Pinot Noir.
The commitment to quality at Dominio de la Vega is significant with strict grape selection, low yields and ageing on the lees for even the entry level Cava of 14 months, way beyond the minimum requirements of 9 months.
The cellar facility at Dominio is housed in an 18th century old country house where production is over seen by winemaker Daniel Exposito. There is also a large cave that stores the ageing bottles of Cava.
