Peru

Article written by Pepe Raventós where he confesses, among others, that he feels more like a winemaker than a winemaker, who has found the way he is comfortable, calm and enjoys the moment. We are left with his next statement: "the greatness of the wine is in the origin, not in the method". The origin is nature. And our role, as winemakers, is to interpret what is the purest and transfer it to a bottle, without filters. "

By the Glass: Grower cava reflects heritage from grape to glass

"The viticultural lineage of the Raventós family reaches back hundreds of years — to 1497 to be exact — but they are not afraid to evolve. In 2012, the 21st generation decided to leave the cava DO (denominacion de origen) to create a more stringently defined geographic appellation. They named it Conca del Riu Anoia, after the river valley where the organically farmed, single estate is situated. Results in the glass are beguiling, expressing a refined mineral profile."

La seva passió pels vins elaborats a partir de varietats autòctones es basa en la creença que un gran vi es fa a la vinya i no al celler.”
