Raventós i Blanc

Raventós i Blanc are a small, family-owned concern, based on 90 hectares at Sant Sadurní d'Anoia. Although a growing estate since 1497, it wasn't until 1984 that family patriarch Josep Maria Raventós and scion Manuel Raventós i Negra struck out with their own brand, produced entirely from estate fruit. From 2012, Raventós ceased from calling their wines Cava, preferring their own appellation; Conca del Riu de Anoia. Raventós i Blanc are solely responsible for the birth of this would-be appellation, which they admit will take a generation to achieve full force. Current family head, Pepe Raventós, lists organic viticulture, proper custodianship of a land for the future, and the centality of life based around a 'masia' (farmhouse) as key motives for the shift. This is an arcadian dream of a Catalan country culture deeply rooted in the land, resulting in a balanced ecology partly concerned with producing estate-based, high-quality wines based entirely on local grapes.
