Eudald Massana Noya winery: farming since the 18th century
The Eudald Massana Noya present in the Penedes region is the result of the love and devotion of the Massana family for nine generations. The family has been farming Mediterranean crops like wheat, peaches, grapes, etc. since the eighteenth century. Now Eudald, the current generation, runs the family business and has come up with a new project for winemaking. He started working with wines at a very tender age, and the company now has his identity in it.
