Segura Viudas Winery Guide


Last updated: December 8, 2023

Winery Overview

Nestled in the enchanting Penedes region of Catalonia, Spain, Segura Viudas Winery is a captivating hidden gem. With its origins tracing back to the 11th century and a modern-day commercial winery established in the 1950s, Segura Viudas offers a remarkable blend of history, architecture, and exceptional wines.

Situated amidst the breathtaking landscape, the winery’s estate seamlessly integrates contemporary facilities with remnants of architectural styles that span centuries, including the captivating Visigoth, Romanesque, and Gothic influences. Adding to its allure, the estate features a 13th-century “Masia,” a stone Catalan villa surrounded by picturesque vineyards, enhancing the overall ambiance. The Penedes region boasts a rich winemaking heritage, ignited by the late 19th-century “Cava Boom” that brought experimentation and viticultural techniques inspired by France’s renowned Champagne region. Segura Viudas continues this tradition as an esteemed Cava house, producing top-class white and red wines that exemplify the region’s excellence.

Being a part of the prestigious Freixenet group, a leading name in Spanish “Wine Tourism,” Segura Viudas ensures visitors a genuinely unforgettable wine-tasting experience. The winery invites guests to indulge in a sensory journey, exploring their highly acclaimed wines that have garnered international acclaim.

Among their collection, the intricately bottled Reserva Heredad Cava stands as a testament to Sequra Viudas’ commitment to excellence. This exceptional Cava, paired with the deliciously fresh Creu de Lavit still white wine and the flawlessly crafted aperitif nonvintage Cava Rosado, showcase the winery’s mastery of winemaking techniques.

Over the years, Segura Viudas has won many national and international awards, including International Wine Challenge, Decanter World Wine Awards, Concours Mondial de Bruxelles, International Wine & Spirit Competition, and Vinari Catalan Wine Awards

These awards reflect the dedication of Segura Viudas to crafting exceptional sparkling wines that embody the essence of the Penedès region and solidifying its reputation as a top-quality producer of sparkling wines.
