After the weekend of Cavatast, we moved to Raventós i Blanc. They have been so kind as to let us stay in a little house they have on their estate, just above their winery. It is a wonderful place and we love being here. We have everything we need and never ever want to go home, even though we know we have to.
Raventós i Blanc is actually on of the few Cava producer that has products available in Sweden. Their brut which is a mix of traditional grapes and very nice indeed, then their De Nit which as a pale pale rosé which looks like diamonds on a glass made from macabeu 50%, xarel-lo 25%, parellada 20% and monastrell 5%, and earlier they had one more avalible at the monopoly that I think is out now.
Raventós i Blanc also makes still wines and during our stay here we have had the great opportunity to try their red named 11, it is from the 2007 harvest and blended with 75% Monastrell and 25% Cabarnet Sauvignon. A fantastic wine that is fruity and spicy at the same time and with a silky touch. We just love it! Too bad we can’t get it in Sweden.
If you ever plan to go to Penedès and visit some wineries, I definitely recommend you to visit Raventós i Blanc.
Here are some pictures and I promise to add more when we have taken some.
