About
Raventós i Blanc "de Nit" Rosado is a beautifully crafted, dry rosé sparkling wine from the Penedès region in Catalonia, Spain. This distinctive rosé is a blend of traditional Spanish grape varieties, including Macabeo, Xarel·lo, Parellada, and a touch of Monastrell, which gives the wine its subtle pink hue. Produced by one of Spain's most esteemed sparkling wine producers, "de Nit" Rosado is celebrated for its elegance, complexity, and adherence to biodynamic farming and winemaking principles, showcasing the unique terroir of the Raventós i Blanc estate.
Producer
The wine-making history of the Raventos family began in the distant 1497, which makes this family one of the oldest wine dynasties operating in this industry without interruption. The first bottle of cava was bottled in 1872 by Josep Maria Raventós i Fatjo, initiating a tradition that was held in high esteem by subsequent generations. In 1986, he decided to sell his stake in Codorníu, the largest cava production in the world, which was still owned by the family at the time, and create a new winery, Raventós i Blanc, keeping only the best vineyards. Today the winery owns 46 plots of land, each with its own unique characteristics. Since then, the emphasis has been on quality and regionality, highlighting the characteristics of the terroirs of the São Sadurní d'Anoia region. The sparkling wine is made exclusively from Xarel-lo, Parellada, Macabeu and Monastrell (Mourvèdre) grapes, and is characterized by a complex multi-layered taste, expressiveness and durability. The current owner, Pepe Raventoss, places great value on a healthy vineyard environment through biological synergies in which animals, vines, soil and people act as one agricultural unit. In 2012, the winery received a biological farming certificate. Since 2013, Raventós i Blanc is no longer part of the Cava DO geographic origin region; the winery moved on to create a new appellation, designated by the principle of terroirs - Conca del Riu Anoia will run from the Mediterranean Sea to the Catalan mountains, between the rivers Anoia and Foz.
Tasting notes

Its balanced acidity and subtle complexity make it an inviting and versatile wine, perfect for any occasion.

Pairing

This sparkling rosé pairs beautifully with a wide range of dishes, particularly seafood paella or grilled shrimp, where its acidity and crispness complement the richness and flavors of the seafood.

Macabeo white wines can be crispy, fresh, green fruit-driven and floral when harvested quite early and aged in stainless steel, but rich, honeyed and and full of overripe fruit aromas when aged in oak and harvested a bit later.
Conca del Riu Anoia
Leading Penedes winemaker Raventos I Blanc – which has quit the Cava DO – has unveiled the framework for a new sparkling wine appellation. Conca Del Riu Anoia is intended to form a very small geographical area surrounding the Anoia River valley between the Anoia and Foix Rivers in eastern Penedes. A key aspect of the appellation is a severe tightening of the current rules of production and reflection of the terroir.
In Catalonia, DO status was first created in 1999, and it became the first regional production area in Spain, which united all vineyards not included in any of the 11 existing DOs at that time. The capital of Catalonia is Barcelona, ​​the second largest city in Spain with one of the largest ports in the Mediterranean. Its seaside location has certainly contributed to the development of local winemaking. Catalonia has a wide variety of winemaking traditions. It is believed that the skills of viticulture were first introduced by the Phoenicians and Greeks around 400 BC. e. The Romans then expanded viticulture and the industry flourished until the Moorish occupation. Then the vineyards were abandoned or given for other purposes. Later Christians revived viticulture in the territories adjacent to the monasteries. Until the end of the 18th century, wine and spirits were among the most important exports in the region. Since then, Catalonia has established itself as a dynamically developing wine region.
