The history of Codorníu is the story of 18 generations of a vine growing family. In 1872, Josep Raventós made the first bottle of cava, applying the traditional method to a blend of the grape varieties of Penedès: Macabeo, Xarel·lo and Parellada. Codorníu reflects the history, tradition, passion and expertise of a family winery with more than 450 years of history, which today continues to maintain its leading position in the production of quality wines and cavas. His cellars in Sant Sadurní d’Anoia were declared a National Historic Artistic Monument in 1976, as one of the key works of Catalan modernism, created by Puig i Cadafalch.
We start by planning the optimal harvest time of the red varieties.
We start by planning the optimal harvest time of the red varieties, looking for a good level of coloring matter in the skin, as well as considerable acidity and moderate alcohol content. After despalillar the grape, we let the grape macerate, leaving the must in contact with the skins for about 3 or 4 hours. Next, the rosé colored must ferments at a temperature of 15-17 °C. Later the assembly of the same is made and it is bottled together with the tirage liqueur. The bottles pass to the underground cellars (at a constant temperature of 17 °C) where the second fermentation takes place followed by a period of aging in contact with the lees of the yeasts. In total, the wine will spend a minimum of 9 months in the cellar, after which the removal and disgorging takes place. Subsequently, a quantity of shipping liquor is dosed, which will determine the residual sugar content of the cava, which determines its Brut dosage. Finally, the bottle is finally covered with a cork stopper.
