Ravent贸s i Blanc

Ravent贸s i Blanc was founded in 1986 by Josep-Maria Ravent贸s, a member of the Cordoniu family who wished to create a small, quality-oriented winery that would stand apart from the large co-ops in the area. Today they own about 300 acres of vineyards (with a high percentage of Chalk in the soil, like Champagne) planted mostly to local varieties such as Macabeo (Viura), Xarel-lo and Parellada.


Today, Pepe Ravent贸s has taken Ravent贸s i Blanc to the next level with his obsession for natural farming and winemaking that reflects the true terroir of this estate...The soil on the estate, in the basin of the River Anoia (Riu Anoia), is calcareous and date back to the oldest period of the Pened猫s depression some 16 million years ago, when the valley was still submerged beneath the Mediterranean Sea. The River Anoia has carved out its course, this being the only area of the Penedes region where these soils replete with tropical marine fossils have surfaced. - Cream Wine
