Notes from Skurnik:

"The exploration of 3 local red varieties: Xarel.lo Vermell, Bastard Negre and Sumoll. Textures de Pedra is the highest expression of the Mediterranean varieties, the Penedès climate, the stony soils of Conca del Riu Anoia and the result of a long aging on the lees, a “Blanc de Negres” which is concentrated on the palate and has great potential for aging.

Raventós i Blanc is the story of a family inextricably linked to their land, a winemaking tradition going back over 500 years, proven by ancient documents still held at the estate. The Raventós i Blanc estate, which has belonged to the Raventós family since 1497, covers 300 acres of vineyards, woodlands and a lake in Sant Sadurní d’Anoia. Following this line of succession, in 1872 Josep Raventós Fatjó made the first bottle-fermented wine in Spain using native grapes from this estate. Raventós i Blanc, the longest, documented viticulture tradition in the world, owned by the same family since 1497.

In November 2012, the family decided to leave the DO Cava and create their own more strictly defined and geographically specific appellation: Conca del Riu Anoia. It was born to create wines coming from a single estate, a specific climate, native grape varieties and a rigorous, well-defined and respectful form of viticulture, in other words, a faithful reflection of where the wine comes from; the River Anoia Valley. An estate with the perfect terroir for producing, probably, the most mineral sparkling wine."
