"Searching for the colour I found the Monastrell of the West Serral that gives us complexity without losing freshness." Pepe Raventós.
The vineyards of la Barbera, Plana and el Viader, have deep calcareous soils with a sand-rich loamy texture that give us the freshness and elegance which define the personality of this sparkling wine. And the Monastrell plot on the lower terraces of the El Serral hillside which defines the personality of De Nit.
The Raventós i Blanc estate, which is comprised on 90 hectares of woodlands and vineyards, was founded in 1497 and has been passed on through the family to the present day. It was a member of the Raventós family, Josep Raventós Fatjó, who made the first Cava in 1872. 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.
CONCA DEL RIU ANOIA - PENEDÈS || In December 2012, Raventós 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 conveys strict viticultural traditions, the strength of the land, the unique, indigenous grape varieties and the characteristics of the soils.
