Vinícola De Sarral
- Foundation year: 1907
- Number of cooperative members: 680
- Total vineyard area: 1000 ha.
1959 saw the merger of this village's two farming entities, the Agricultural Union, created in 1907, and the Winegrowers Union, formed in 1913 under the name of Cooperativa Vinícola de Sarral. The production of bottled wines and cavas dates back to the 1980s (the construction of the first cellar, for example, dates from 1984). Later, the facilities were expanded and modernised, first for the production of cavas and then still wines.
Next was one of the company's idiosyncrasies: naturally fermented sparkling wine, with one of the few production plants for this type of wine in Spain.
The cooperative's determined foray into international markets a decade later was another step that saw this historical entity of Sarral reach today's successful status, one hundred years after its foundation. Now rechristened Vinícola de Sarral y Sociedad de Crédito, Covisal, SCCL, it's one of the most prosperous and dynamic cooperatives in the Catalan wine industry. The modernist winery built by the architect Pere Domènech i Roure in 1914 is a stunning piece of work.
