Raventos i Blanc was founded in 1986 by Josep-Maria Raventos, a member of the Codorníu 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. All three of these
grapes are found in the excellent value Brut "L'Hereu".

Raventos i Blanc is the only Cava producer to estate grow and estate bottle all of their Cavas. The grapes are biodynamically farmed and certified by the Catalan Integrated Production Council (CCPI).
The Cavas are found on such 3 star Michelin restaurants as El Bulli and Arzak, and represent the highest quality in Cava and an incredible value in sparkling wine.
