The challenge to place Spanish wines in the premium segment of the international markets started in 1993. Javier Ruiz de Galarreta was convinced that premium family bodegas had a great potential in the export markets so he established a common export company for high-end quality estates from Rioja Alavesa and other leading Spanish wine regions.
Twenty years later, a celebration is in place. Loyal to his initial philosophy, Javier Galarreta has selected excellent vineyards and modern facilities to produce a “different” Cava. Since 2009, he has been travelling extensively in Catalunya to find partners capable of producing an elegant, fresh sparkling wine. In the heart of the Penedès, he discovered the vineyards and qualities he was looking for to make such a style of wine. During his quest to find this Cava, Javier’s mother Conchi passed away in July 2010 and wasn’t able to taste and savour her son’s latest challenge. Villa Conchi is not only a modern, elegant Cava which shows what Spain can offer; it is also a tribute to a woman who was always a source of inspiration for elegance and distinction.
