Pere Ventura Gran Vintage Paraje Calificado Can Bas is a cava that tells of the place it comes from, a small area of vineyards qualified after their special soil conditions and a micro climate that sets them apart from the rest of the vines grown around them. Pere Ventura Gran Vintage represents the Paraje of Can Bas: the identity of this cava comes from its origin, the series of variables (climate, geology, soil and biome) that determine the expression of the grapes and yield a unique must that is the reflection and interpretation of that vintage. The uniqueness of the terroir, together with quality criteria of its production and ageing, create a cava with distinctive characteristics. It also draws value added and identity from its history and the age of the soil.
