The Spanish Club is hosting a wine tasting even with Pepe Raventos, the Master Winemaker of Bodegas Raventos. Raventos i Blanc was founded in 1986 by Josep-Maria Raventos, a member of the Codorniu 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, as well as 15% Monastrell, are found in this delicate, beautiful rose bottling. Raventos i Blanc is the only Cava producer to estate grow and estate bottle all of their Cavas. The Raventos i Blanc estate in Sant Sadurni­d'Anoia, has belonged to the Raventos family since 1497, and been passed on intact from generation to generation up to the present day. 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.
