Raventós i Blanc

Basic Info

The Raventós i Blanc estate, which is comprised of 90 hectares of woodlands and vineyards, was founded in 1497 and has been passed on through the family to the present day – each generation involved in wine making and grape growing. 1872, Josep Raventós Fatjó began experimenting with Spanish wines made in the same manner as was being done in Champagne, France – and hence, CAVA was born. In 1984, on the family estate, Josep-Maria Raventós I Blanc founded the winery as we know it today with a singular focus on achieving the highest quality wines. Today, the father and son team of Manuel and Pepe Raventós (Josep-Maria’s son and grandson) work side by side, continuing the prestigious lineage of this remarkable estate. In December 2012, Raventos i Blanc took an important step in its evolution, leaving the Cava DO and creating a new designation, Conca del Riu Anoia. This small geographical area will convey strict viticultural traditions, the strength of the land, the unique, indigenous grape varieties and the characteristics of the soils.
