In 1914, Josep Jané was working as a salesman in the Penedès region; through sheer drive and initiative, he took the first steps to create what we now know as Jané Ventura, one of the region’s premier producers of Cava and other indigenous styles. Josep’s great grandson Gerard currently leads the team, carrying on a rich history that grew steadily throughout the last century. Today, in addition to the grapes sourced from estate vineyards, Gerard continues longstanding relationships with 20 area growers throughout Penedès. They have been certified organic since 2010, and organic in practice for much longer.
A rare thing indeed to find a rosé cava made from Grenache -- its fruitiness really shines in this gorgeous sparkler. Champagne taste on a budget, this wine is for you.
