Joan Sardà is a family-owned business devoted to the making and aging of fine wines and cavas.
Our story began in 1927, when Tomàs Sardà, a farmer who cultivated his own vineyards, found himself with a surplus of wine after a good harvest.
An entrepreneurial man, he decided to sell the surplus to a restaurant owned by a relative in the city of Barcelona.
Tomàs’s wine was an instant hit among the restaurant’s clientele, and people began to purchase it from him directly. Through great effort and perseverance, he managed to gain a firm foothold in a major market.
Subsequently, his son Joan and his grandchildren Joan and Antoni, both oenologists, consolidated the company, increased the surface area devoted to vines and built a new winery, allowing them to internationalise the family business.
The vineyards, primarily located in the Penedès Central region, are home to Macabeo, Parellada, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo, Merlot and Syrah grape varieties.
We also grow Lledoner grapes at Cap de Creus in Northern Catalonia. Thus, our range of products encompasses both local and international varieties, which have proven to be highly adaptable to our region.
