Raventós i Blanc is owned by one of Spain’s most historic winemaking families with a viticultural tradition dating back to 1497. They have been at the forefront of Cava production since Josep Raventós Fatjó produced Spain’s first traditional method sparkling wine in 1872 from Xarel-lo grown on their estate.
This producer took the decision to leave the Cava DO in 2012, in order to focus on the estate’s 50 hectares of vines in the more distinctive Conca del Riu Anoia region.
Raventós i Blanc’s 50 hectares of vines are located in the Conca del Riu Anoia in Alt Penedès. Biodynamic principles are adhered to, using manure from the farm's animals as the base for the compost. The climate here is Mediterranean with mild winters and warm, dry summers.
The nose has delicate notes of citrus fruits, white flowers and soft Mediterranean herbs. The palate is round with a superb freshness and mineral notes on the persistent finish.
40% Xarel-lo , 32% Macabeo, 28% Parellada
