Pepe Raventós

Manager, oenologist and wine grower at Raventós i Blanc. Dynamic, active and passionate about the world of wine and wine-growing. Pepe Raventós joined Raventós i Blanc in 2001. Pepe has been part of the world of sparkling from an early age, spending his summers picking grapes in Sant Sadurní, he also spent hours working on the land in Saint Emilion, learning how to make red wines.
Trained as an oenologist at the Complutense university in Madrid, he gained experience in making terroir wines working alongside Didier Dagenau on Pouilly Fumé, Olivier Lamy at Saint Aubin, Harald Hexamer in the Nahe region; and Phillippe Blanc in Alsace. He is always eager to pursue excellence in every detail of his winery. His goal: to make his grandfather's dream come true: to make Raventós i Blanc a wine-growing brand of international standing. In 2012 Pepe Raventós decided to leave the DO Cava to launch a new project: CONCA DEL RIU ANOIA.

Conca del riu Anoia, the name of a small geographical area, to help us to better understand and convey our viticultural traditions, the strength of our land, our unique grape varieties and the characteristics of our terroir: in short, the way we make sparkling wines. Pepe Raventós is convinced that there is an opportunity for honest wines resulting from a single estate, a specific climate, native grape varieties and rigorous, well-defined and respectful viticulture.
