CAN PRATS TERROIRS | PARAJE CALIFICADO

CARRERAS FAMILY

Can Prats, located in Sant Llorenç d’Hortons, dates back to 1393, but it was Joan Prats who gave it its current name, in 1568.

Josep Esteve, another of the founders of Vins El Cep, perpetuated the wine growing legacy but also added to it.

His daughter, Maite Esteve, is now running the winery.

CAN SIMON

ESTEVE FAMILY

This masia (farmhouse) was founded in 1501, but named by Jaume Simon in 1673. Many of the Esteve family’s vineyards are located in Can Simon, which is in Sant Llorenç d’Hortons, but some are also found in Can Farraguet and Can Prats.

Gil Masana, one of the founders of Vins El Cep, has dedicated his entire life to the care and cultivation of these lands with the passion and wisdom that come with the passing years.


Today his daughters, Mercè and Montse, are keeping his legacy alive.

Over 20 generations have come and gone and today it is Pere Parera following in the footsteps of his grandfather and father.


As one of the founders of Vins El Cep, he has dedicated his life to working his land and has become a pioneer in biodynamic wine growing in the Penedès region.
