Okay so there is good Cava and bad Cava and this wine is neither! In Spain, producers of Cava are held to a very low standard, so tons and tons of horribly produced, mass market sparkling wines are made by companies you've probably seen at your local supermarket. In response to this, small vignerons have banded together to make new Spanish sparkling wine regions with much much higher standards. Pepe Raventos is one of these trailblazers we are proud to support.

    Raventós i Blanc is the story of a family inextricably linked to their land, a winemaking tradition going back over 500 years, proven by ancient documents still held at the estate. The Raventós i Blanc estate, which has belonged to the Raventós family since 1497, covers 300 acres of vineyards, woodlands and a lake in Sant Sadurní d’Anoia. Following this line of succession, in 1872 Josep Raventós Fatjó made the first bottle-fermented wine in Spain using native grapes from this estate. Raventós i Blanc, the longest, documented viticulture tradition in the world, owned by the same family since 1497.

    Raventós i Blanc, loyal to its tradition, make the relationship between human and nature central to the winemaking philosophy. In order to achieve wines of the greatest authenticity and typicity they returned to the traditional method of vine-growing, which was already being used on the estate in 1497: the interaction between the land, microclimate, vines, animals and the people who work in the estate. Their  goal  is  to  ensure  that  their estate  is  treated  with  the  utmost authenticity and tradition, placing an absolute priority on soils, climate and native grape varieties.

    In November 2012, the family decided to leave the DO Cava and create their own more strictly defined and geographically specific appellation: Conca del Riu Anoia. It was born to create wines coming from a single estate, a specific climate, native grape varieties and a rigorous, well-defined and respectful form of viticulture, in other words, a faithful reflection of where the wine comes from; the River Anoia Valley. An estate with the perfect terroir for producing, probably, the most mineral sparkling wine.
