The RaventÃ³s i Blanc estate, which is comprised on 90 hectares 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 RaventÃ³s family, Josep RaventÃ³s FatjÃ³, who made the first Cava in 1872. In 1984, on the family estate, Josep-Maria RaventÃ³s 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 RaventÃ³s (Josep-Mariaâ€™s son and grandson) work side by side, continuing the prestigious lineage of this remarkable estate.
CONCA DEL RIU ANOIA - PENEDÃˆS || In December 2012, RaventÃ³s i Blanc took an important step in its evolution, leaving the Cava DO and creating 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.
