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.

    This was the dream of Pepe Raventós since he worked with Didier Dagueneau in 2004: to make a wine that is about the soil—in this case, marine limestone from a slope rather than silex—and not about the grapes. The wine is aging at a very slow pace, and the year, one of the best in recent times along with 2010 and 2013, resulted in livelier wines, like this one; it has superb freshness and acidity perfectly integrated and in harmony with the bubbles. It has the tasty salinity and the intense finish—still incredibly lively at age ten. The juice has such depth and intensity that the lees are hardly marking the wine, with less oxidative aromas and a notable absence of smoky and developed aromas. It's livelier and, in many aspects, younger than the 2011 of the Manuel Raventós Negra I tasted next to it. Without a doubt, it's a world-class sparkling wine. It was disgorged in July 2017. 2,735 bottles produced. It's a brut nature, without any added sugar.
