Emendis is located in an ancient farmhouse, called a “masía” in Catalan, in the hamlet of Castellet i la Gornal in Penedès, near Barcelona. The name Emendis comes from the first resident of the masía, a woman who according to historical records founded the estate around 1186. The masía is in fact still owned by a woman, Anna Valles, who works with her husband Jordi and the rest of the family to make wines and cavas in the Penedès.
