The link of two cousins, Antonio Jane Formosa and Josefa Pascual Formosa, gave rise to the driving force of the Bodega J. Miquel Jané, which today reaches the fourth generation embodied in Bernadette and Josep Miquel.
The family initally purchased properties located in the Alt Penedès: Font-Rubí, El Vendrell, Vilafranca del Penedès, Sant Cugat Sesgarrigues and Avinyonet del Penedès. The family wine was originally produced in bulk and found a broad horizon in, the then, colonial Cuba. This was facilitated by the fact that another branch of the family owned the frigates that crossed the ocean. The painting of the frigate "Remedios Pascual Formosa", which is exhibited at the Maritime Museum in Barcelona, gives a faithful testimony.
The civil war temporarily truncated the wine activity and the family suffered a long exile. Josep Miquel Jane, son of Antonia Jané, lead the wine production, which at the time was still destined for bulk. Things changed in 2002, when the winery launched their first bottled wines – an approach that is still embodied in the winery today.
The family has always had a strong female dynamic, as shown by Antonia Jané Pascual, the youngest of the three daughters of the founders, who enlarged the planting area by buying Cal Costas and Baltana Vella. She has also collected numerous awards in recognition for the excellent quality achieved in the wine.
The family’s strong female force is carried on by Bernadette Miquel Vacarisas, who now leads the activity, keeping the family heritage alive and destined for excellence.
