Vinari awards recognize the lifetime achievement of Antoni Mata Casanovas at the helm of Recaredo

Antoni Mata Casanovas, along with his brother Josep, belongs to the second generation of the Recaredo family. Over more than 60 years devoted to making sparkling wines, the brothers Antoni and Josep pursued a project that emphasized rigour, quality and excellence right from the start.

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.

With discretion and modesty, Antoni Mata Casanovas has worked tirelessly, providing leadership in management, creativity, representation and oenology. Thanks to their tenacity and dedication, over time the Mata-Casanovas brothers progressively specialized in producing “terroir sparkling wines”, making the vine the central focus of their work.

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.
