Sant Sadurní d’Anoia, March 2022.- The worlds of cava and tennis have merged, once again, thanks to Vilarnau and the “Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell – Trofeo Conde de Godó”. They have done so by uniting for the next four editions of this tournament that will have Vilarnau as its official cava. Therefore, the ecological cava of Vilarnau will witness, together with the tennis lovers who come to the Real Club de Tenis Barcelona-1899, the game of the best rackets in the world.
A tennis match between vineyards
The first act of this meeting took place in Vilarnau, where the clay court of the Real Club de Tenis Barcelona-1899 was created. In this unique setting, David Ferrer and Tommy Robredo have taken part in an exhibition match surrounded by the vineyards of this cava located between the mountains of Montserrat and the Mediterranean Sea. A unique experience that has concluded with the announcement by Tommy Robredo of his retirement from tennis.
A sustainable tournament and cava
The “Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell – Trofeo Conde de Godó” is a leading tournament on the ATP circuit from the point of view of sustainability, which has the ISO 20121 certificate for the management of sustainable events and has been recognized by Barcelona Biosphere with the distinction to the commitment for the tourist sustainability of the city. A philosophy that is also present in Vilarnau, a cava that has the “Wineries for Climate Protection ” certification and is committed to the ecological production of its cavas, as well as a balanced development.
Cava and tennis, two worlds not so different
This union materializes the merge of cava and tennis, two worlds that seem different, but have points in common. They share sounds, such as the one caused by the uncorking of a bottle and the hitting of a racket. Also the shapes, as the bubbles in a glass of cava are similar to tennis balls. The vineyards are the net and the soil the scene where cavas are born and champions are created. In summary, cava is, like the victory in the “Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell – Trofeo Conde de Godó”, synonymous with emotion and celebration.
Between the mountains of Montserrat and the Mediterranean Sea is Vilarnau, a cava where the magic of tradition, the avant-garde and respect for the environment come together in perfect harmony. It is a place connected with nature and where organic cavas are made that express different ideas, concepts, styles. Designed by the architect Luis González and decorated by the prestigious interior designer Antonio Miró, its name refers to the old DOMVS (fortified Romanesque house of the Vila Arnau). This cava is supplied from vineyards planted in the same place where the first owners of the Domvs cultivated their vines in the 12th century. Vilarnau, which produces a classic range of cavas and another signature range, offers very limited productions of high quality, endorsed by national and international awards and recognitions.
