North west of Barcelona, in the Anoia Valley countryside surrounded by the Serra of Montserrat Mountains, is a distinguished family vineyard dating back 500 hundred years, where some of the finest, most innovated and inspiring Spanish wines have been cultivated. The Raventós estate.

Manuel Raventós, 20th generation winemaker in this land, created in 1986 the first estate bottled and estate produced sparkling wine in Spain with the first vintage of Raventós i Blanc. An estate where since 1497 the same family has been working, becoming probably one of the longest documented viticulture family tradition in the world.

Manuel’s personal selections of the best wines from each vintage, with his particular blending were the beginning of his series of Manuel Raventós Personal Oenotheque 1986, 1998, 1999, 2000...

Following his father and his grandfather’s dream, Pepe Raventós, 21st generation, joined Raventós i Blanc with the aim to pursue excellence in every detail of the winery, Pepe’s own spirit of innovation and perfectionism inspired him to create a world-class sparkling wine unlike any other- one made distinct by its minerality.

Having worked with world-renowned winemakers, Pepe realized in 2005 that a small portion of the family vineyard, Clos del Serral, was ideally suited to create an exceptional sparkling wine. With this special opportunity, Pepe sought to make the most of it, working this plot as a most precious garden. Bringing back together man, earth, and animal, Pepe returned to the origins of vinification with a contemporary vision. The result is Mas del Serral, a premium sparkling wine prepared to claim its place alongside the world’s finest champagnes.

In 1872 the Raventós family brought Champagne to Spain. Today, Pepe Raventós is bringing Mas del Serral to the world.

    The most refined Spanish sparkling wine I have ever tasted. Despite being aged 17 months in vat and 100 months in bottle, it shows pristine fruit, intriguing stone aromas and racy freshness. Delicate texture; layered flavors linger on the palate. Sourced from an old vineyard with Xarel-lo and Bastard Negre (a local biotype of Graciano). A top terroir biodynamic wine and a masterwork. Drink 2021-2039.

    Sporting a burnished limpid straw hue, the 2009 boasts an electrifying bouquet laced with scents of orange rind, sea spray and oyster shells - the marine-like aromas intensifying with aeration. The palate delivers exquisite harmony and the tension that would embarrass many a self-aggrandizing Champagne. There is so much energy coiled up in this cava, with a glorious saline edginess on the finish that urges you back for another sip (and another and another.) This cuvée is not inexpensive and is very limited in quantity, but it is also unequivocally sensational. It will drink well for maybe 15 to 20 years
