Raventós i Blanc is a Spanish winery and family business in Sant Sadurní d'Anoia founded in 1497. The estate of the Raventós family covers about 90 hectares of vineyards and woodlands. The winery produces natural wine. Pepe Raventós is the twenty-first generation of his family to work the estate.
Blanc de Blancs is a sparkling wine marked by the typicity of its place of origin, the Vinya del Llac, a vineyard over 40 years’ old, which allows them to obtain a structured, fresh and complex sparkling wine.
It is a Blanc de Blancs due to its three native white grape varieties: Macabeu, Xarel·lo and Parellada.
The great novelty this year is the incorporation of the Malvasia de Sitges in the Blanc de Blancs blend.
The Malvasia de Sitges is a variety that has almost disappeared and which we have recovered from our estate. With 1.5 Ha in the La Plana vineyard. Thus, in order to continue innovating with our sparkling wines, we decided to incorporate the Malvasia de Sitges to the Blanc de Blancs, a variety that is complicated in viticulture but a jewel in winemaking, since it has a very high natural acidity, thus, it acts as a natural acidifying, it also gives volume, it has good ripening and is intensely and aromatically complex.
They present a Blanc de Blancs with 5% Malvasia from Sitges, and the rest with the traditional native varieties; Macabeu, Xarel-lo and Parellada.
