Raventos i Blanc Sparkling Rosé de Nit – Organic and Biodynamic
The Raventós i Blanc estate, over 220 acres 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 ever 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.
In December 2012, Raventós i Blanc took an important step in its evolution, leaving the Cava DO that they helped to establish and create 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.
Raventos de Nit Like all Raventos wines, vintage dated.The white varieties (Xa-Rello, Parellada, and Macabeu) for de Nit are from the La Barbera, La Plana, and El Viader estate plots with deep calcareous soils with a sand-rich loamy texture giving freshness and elegance. The Monastrell (Mourvèdre), providing color (without sacrificing freshness) is from the lower terraces of the El Serral hillside. Made in the traditional/ Champenoise method. Vinification in stainless steel tanks followed by blending and secondary fermentation in the bottle, aged for a minimum of 18 months.
