The Segura Viudas Estate dates back to the 11th century and it invites us to take a stroll through history. At the beginning it was an inhabited watch tower, the Galimany Tower, that grew and changed with every new century under architectural styles like Visigoth, Romanesque and Gothic. In the 13th century the tower lost its military importance and was converted into a masia, which is the name given to country houses in Catalonia. From the Mas d’Aranyo to the church of San Salvador de Lavit, the estate, or The Heredad, has borne witness to the many families and much history that can be seen today in the very walls of the building. At the end of the 19th century, surrounding our estate, the various indigenous grape varieties began to flourish in our vineyards and be noted for their winemaking potential .
Segura Viudas began producing sparkling wines in 1959, but it was not until 1969 when it began to market those wines, whose quality stood out from the very first moment. In the early 1980’s the estate was purchased by the Ferrer Family as it was known for its high quality cavas and still wines and it fit perfectly in the Freixenet family portfolio.
Throughout its history Segura Viudas has continually used the most modern winemaking technology to craft the highest quality Cava’s that to this day remain highly lauded and truly enjoyed across the globe.
