Bottle size and vintage
Their “premier” wine, by the company’s own admission and a fine example of their work. Macabeo is the primary grape here, but the complexity comes from using a blend of varieties and the different soil compositions. Harvested manually and quickly transferred to the winery, the grapes are fed in by gravity. At each stage of the wine-making process, the atmosphere is controlled by using dry ice.
A fruity Cava (lemon and apple), smooth, unblemished, with well-balanced acidity. Totally refreshing, with an abundance of fine bubbles.
A second fermentation occurs in bottle, followed by a minimum ageing period of 15 months lying in a horizontal position.

Really great. Fresh, lively, nice notes of apple and lemon. A fine substitute for champagne at a third of the price.
Raventós i Blanc
There are few family-run wineries that can date back their wine-making traditions as far as this one can. Their ownership of 90 hectares of vineyards and woodlands located around Sant Sadurní d'Anoia can be traced back to 1497, passing intact through the hands of 18 generations.
