Antoni Mata Casanovas receives award for career accomplishments

Antoni Mata Casanovas, member of the second generation of the Recaredo family, was given the award by 2020 edition of Guia de Vins de Catalunya for his career as a winemaker, providing leadership in management, creativity, representation and oenology in Recaredo.

At the age of seven, Antoni Mata Casanovas was already helping out with the bâtonnage (stirring of lees) in the family cellars. An eagerness to learn and improve drove him to study oenology and viticulture at schools around Spain, and he deepened his knowledge by making countless trips to wine regions all over the world.

Antoni Mata Casanovas – alongside his brother Josep –  began building Recaredo’s reputation as a byword for rigour, quality and passion in wine-making. At the same time, they embarked on a journey that would lead them to specialize in terroir sparkling wines, with the vineyards as a key element. The brothers defined Recaredo’s approach to viticulture, eventually adopting the business model known in French as récoltant-manipulant—the making of wine by producers on their own estate, from grapes harvested from their own vineyards.

Though Ton is now retired, he continues to actively pursue his passion and vocation for the great wines of the Penedès region. His contribution to the wine sector, entrepreneurship and vitality have undoubtedly made an indelible mark on Recaredo’s history.
