Making wine

The 2019 harvest in Clos del Serral Making wine is probably the best thing that could ever have happened to us. The best knowledge that our ancestors have passed on to us and the best memory we can leave to our successors. Winemaking is connecting to the land and following its rhythm, and the land […]

Vineyard tasks on the estate in spring

As Pepe Raventós says: “Making a great wine is an easier task than we tend to think.” And we all know that wine is made in the vineyard and the vineyard is where it all begins, but we are perhaps unaware – or not sufficiently aware – of all the work behind the scenes, everything […]

Travelling to the soul of wines

“Le vin est la plus saine et la plus hygiénique des boissons” Louis Pasteur As Pepe Raventós always says, travelling helps you open your mind and gives you a different perspective about everything in life. Trips to Burgundy, Barolo, Champagne…, you see how things have been done well, and you gain a better understanding of the real path. We travel, we learn and we realize that we have a […]

The New York Wine Experience

Going back to where Pepe and his family spent 5 winters  in an incomparable setting: the  New York Wine Experience, probably the most important wine event in the world. Just a year ago we were talking about natural wines, about the Raw Wine Fair and New York, the city that has stolen all our hearts. […]

The harvest of hope

The days just before the harvest days are almost like organizing a wedding. Looking up at the sky again and again, general excitement, an underlying feeling of nervousness that increases as the day gets closer.  The most important task during the preceding days is to visit each plot to see the maturity level of the […]

Raventós i Blanc, the most mineral estate

The singularity of the geology of the Conca del Riu Anoia is what enables us to show off our wines just as they are: mineral and saline. The history of the soils from the Raventós i Blanc estate – framed in the geographic area of the Conca del Riu Anoia – not only contain the […]

Can Sumoi

Visitors to the farm is always good news. There are those who, sometimes, bring you pastries from the other side of the world with labels that you’re not even capable of understanding, those who give you their best smiles and those who pass by without saying anything, but at the end – like everything in […]

Lost traditions

A popular tradition which exists in several European countries, customary since ages past and carried out in an artisan way once a year, coinciding with the coldest months of winter, which provide the best possible conditions for manipulating the fat and meat from the pig. It continues today but is no longer performed like it […]

The poetry hidden behind pruning

It’s winter; the time has come. The vine is asleep; all energy is directed towards the roots and the life is mainly found in the soil. The most intimate contact between man and nature occurs during pruning. Observe, breathe, walk around and sense, above all sense. Before we prune, we must first study the vineyard, […]

Wine readings

“A bottle of wine contains more philosophy than all the books in the world.”  Louis Pasteur. In spite of being quite in agreement with what Louis Pasteur preached, we also believe in the magic of books. You are not a true fan of wine without a good wine cellar (full) of publications. Often, choosing a […]
