Production: An estate sparkling wine with the personal stamp of its creator sourced from a historic vineyard with the ideal geology and microclimate conditions to produce their finest and most emblematic cava. The grapes are selected from nine different plots, located on the slopes of the Serral hills with a north-eastern exposure and planted on calcareous soils with tropical marine fossils. The first fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature and bottle aged for a minimum of 3 years on its lees in the rack down position. Reducing sugar: 3,5g/L.
Raventós I Blanc a producer of top quality cava with a well deserved reputation for elegant, well conceived white wines, comprises of a estate of 90 ha. of vineyards, woods and a lake in Sant Sadurni d’Anoia that have belonged to the Raventós family since 1497. The winery was founded in 1986 by Josep-Maria Raventos a member of the Codorniu family, after abandoning the presidency of the big Firm Codorniu he set up his new independent, much smaller and quality orientated winery. Today the operation is run by his own son and grandson, his direct descendents and who at the end of 2012 took the decision to leave the Cava Apellation to adopt a new and un-certified designation to classify its wines: “Conca del riu Anoia”, the name for a small geographical area around de Anoia River Valley in eastern Penedès, in order to better understand and convey the viticultural traditions in terms of soil and climate.
