JOAN ESTEVE NADAL, A VISIONARY OF THE MID-20TH CENTURY

< volver

The family has always had an innovative spirit. In 1957, Joan Esteve Nadal bought one of the first tractors in the village, and we still have this tractor today. With this machine he incorporated mechanical traction into the work which, at that point in time, was done by animal traction using horses. Since then, a great qualitative and quantitative leap forward has been made in Can Fontanals. The incorporation of new machinery, not only for cultivation but also for everything related to wine and cava, has been a constant, while never losing sight of the respect for and faith in our tradition.
