About the location

Codorníu is synonymous with the history of a family of winegrowers dating back to the sixteenth century. It’s the oldest wine business in Spain. Manuel Raventós, the driving force of Codorníu, hired a modernist architect Josep Puig i Cadafalch in 1895 to expand the winery. Caves Codorníu was declared a National Historic Heritage in 1976, a beautiful piece of architecture dedicated to the elaboration and aging of world’s finest sparkling wines.

About the Cava

For more than a century, Codorníu has always elaborated its second fermentation and aging in an underground basement labyrinth at just the right temperature. In 1872 Josep Raventós Fatjó made the first Cava of the world according to the “Méthode Traditionelle” and used native grape varieties from the  Penedès region: Macabeo, Xarel·lo and Parellada. In this way he could create a completely new industry in the region and link the brand Codorníu to the history of Cava.
