Gassås Wine

In 1979 Carlos Esteva decided to go and live in his grandfather’s estate, Can Ràfols dels Caus.

His early attempts with viticulture occurred on the island of Menorca in the 1970’s, but it wasn’t until he took charge of the family estate that he decided to get involved in the production of wines of quality, body and soul, respecting the characteristics of the surrounding landscape and the architecture within a sustainable scope.

Carlos Esteva’s arrival in the Garraf was nothing short of a revolution: not only did he embark on the daunting task of restoring the noble but derelict masia (traditional Catalan farmhouse), but he regenerated the

farming of the vineyards, introducing new varieties and methods of cultivation, making a decisive bet on quality wines of unique character that would give an identity to his estate winery.
With various decades of experience in the wine world, Carlos Esteva continues to distinguish himself for his ample culture in this sector – he has been named head of the prestigious International Academy of Wine
and for his capacity to diversify: not satisfied with having created some twenty references at Can Ràfols dels Caus –both wines and cavas–, he has steered other projects such as Mas Oller in the Empordà and Can Camps a small estate that has the distinction of producing wine from vineyards located in the midst of the Natural Park of the Massís del Garraf.

HISTORY

In 1979 Carlos Esteva decided to go and live in his grandfather’s estate, Can Ràfols dels Caus,  located in the northern foothills of the Garraf massif in the Catalan Coastal Range.

He embarked the task of restoring the noble farmhouse and regenerated the farming of the vineyards, introducing new varieties and methods of cultivation, making a decisive bet on quality wines of unique character that would give an identity to his estate winery.

With various decades of experience in the wine world, Carlos Esteva continues to distinguish himself for his ample culture in this sector. He has been named head of the prestigious International Academy of Wine and for his capacity to diversify: not satisfied with having created some twenty references at Can Ràfols dels Caus –both wines and cavas–, he has steered other projects such as Mas Oller in the Empordà and Can Camps a small estate that has the distinction of producing wine from vineyards located in the midst of the Natural Park of the Massís del Garraf.

The property has a past that goes back over a thousand years.

The Vineyard Can Ràfols dels Caus is located at a height of 300 meters above sea-level, between the valleys of two torrents, where the land has been terraced to be planted with vineyards. The original estate comprised some 450 hectares to which we can add another 250 hectares recently purchased to avoid the development of a stone quarry that would have represented a serious threat to the environmental equilibrium of this part of the Garraf, where old vines now thrive after being saved from being converted into cement dust by the strong will of Carlos Esteva.

The vineyards consist mostly of small lots scattered across the property, occupying a total of about 90 hectares and constitute a genuine varietal melting-pot: no less than 28 varieties. Carlos Esteva’s passion for experimenting has led him to introduce into the Garraf a number of grapes that had never been grown in the vineyards of Spain, such as the whites Chenin Blanc and Incrocio Manzoni.

At the present time these varieties are present at Can Ràfols dels Caus, together with local varieties such as the whites Xarel·lo and Macabeu, or the red Sumoll, to which we should add a long list of foreign varieties: Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Roussane, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir or Cabernet Sauvignon.Good wines can only come from good grapes and balanced vines where production allows the grapes to ripen properly – there is a great belief that nature should be allowed to take its course, not using any chemical products, using only organic fertilizers and picking grapes by hand respecting spontaneous fermentations without adding extra yeasts. This is the philosophy at Can Ràfols dels Caus and the secret to making the best wines.
