The MESTRES family have been documented in Sant Sadurní d'Anoia since 1312 as the owner of vineyards and also as traders of grains and wines. The family has been connected to the wine world for 29 generations. At the time, the date of 1312 was taken as the year of the establishment of the MESTRES vineyards.

During the Christmas of 1928 the first bottle of Cava MESTRES was produced, which Josep Mestres Manobens produced with grapes from the vintage 1925. From this date the family specialized in the production of sparkling wines with a very long maturation made according to the champagne way namely the traditional method. From that moment on, MESTRES only focused on high quality and became a reference and benchmark for top cavas. Josep Mestres Manobens is the one who has started using a high-quality basic wine to make a Cava using a 'champagne' ('champenoise' method) without adding a sugar-liquid (this is used for the extra fermentation by most houses), which he called "Visol" ((WINE ON IT'S OWN). Mestres only works with wine and no addition. This is how the first Brut Nature was born and has been registered in the Patent and Trademark office since 1948. So Mestres are the parents of Brut Nature Today the 29th generation of the MESTRES family follows the path of their predecessors and maintains the restless and enterprising spirit that characterized the MESTRES family, a winery with seven centuries of history.

Throughout all those years we have been able to follow tradition and respect a philosophy of unique elaboration, bringing the name MESTRES and the word CAVA to excellence. Mestres is the living history of Cava. Today the MESTRES Cava's all have very high ratings.

For the Mestres La Coqueta Reserva Demi Sec, 2 natural corks are used to produce the Cava. this makes the Merstres unique. This (more expensive) process is actually only seen with the very exclusive champagne brands (normally it is the case that first a crown stool is used and only at the disgorgement the natural cork). Since Mestres uses very long aging, the porosity of the cork ensures a refinement of the wine.

One hundred percent of the sparkling wines from Mestres are aged under cork in the bottle. Mestres is a very traditional Cava producer and is compared in style to the "López de Heredia & Tondonia" among the Cava.

The basic wine is obtained at a controlled temperature of 14-15C. The second fermentation in bottle is completed in contact with the first 100% natural cork, in a horizontal position in aging for no less than 30 months in the traditional bottle on its own yeasts in CAVA MESTRES. After the disgorgement (the manual process of removing dead yeast cells) the 2nd cork is placed. NV Mestres La Coqueta Demi Sec Reserva is a light-sweet version with 12 grams of residual sugar (brut is around 7 grams). The Cava is produced with Macabeu (35%) Xarel·lo (40%) Parellada (25%). The first fermentation in the bottle was for 15 months and the second fermentation in the bottle for 30 months.

The Mestres La Coqueta is a classic Cava and slightly less dry than a normal brut. The wine has, as with all CAVA MESTRES, beautiful refined elegant bubbles (perlage). The wine has a light yellow color with fresh aromas. The primary fruit from the base wine melts with the notes of honey and ripened fruit that come from aging. In the mouth it is fruity and fresh, with fine bubbles that are perfectly integrated into the structure of the cava. Pleasant with a lot of freshness. CAVAS MESTRES recommends not drinking the wine too cold. The recommended temperature is between 8-15 degrees, with a somewhat higher temperature the flavors come out even better.

FACTS: MESTRES has always printed the disgorgement date on the label. The wine has received 90/100 Penin points.
