Raventós i Blanc is a winery with one of the longest documented winegrowing traditions in the world. The family farm where our wines are now produced has belonged to the Raventós family since 1497. Five centuries working 90 hectares of vines and forest, a dynasty closely associated with the land from one generation to the next. Today, Pepe Raventós, who represents the twenty-first generation of the family, farms 44 plots using biodynamic winegrowing methods and is committed to maintaining the estate of vines, wood and lake as a complete entity. Raventós i Blanc is faithful to tradition and upholds the relationship between man and nature at the very core of its production philosophy. Manuel and Pepe Raventós, son and grandson of Josep Maria Raventós are in charge of making the grandfather’s dreams come true: converting this winery into an internationally renowned viticultural brand. Both these winemakers have made Raventós i Blanc one of the best sparkling wines in the world, faithful to a unique estate, a specific climate and a method that pursues excellence with minimum human intervention.
