Raventós i Blanc
WINEGROWERS SINCE 1497
Five centuries of winegrowing, tradition and family
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.
Since 1497, twenty-one generations of the Raventós family have worked this 90-hectare terroir at Sant Sadurní d'Anoia
From historical documents about Can Codorníu, we know that in 1497 our ancestors were already growing grapes here for their own consumption and producing must for commercial purposes. This probably represents the longest winegrowing tradition in Europe owned by a single family. Our winery is located at the centre of the estate.
