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.
The rosé-colored must ferments at a temperature of 15-17 °C.
It begins by planning the optimal time for harvesting the red varieties, looking for a good level of coloring matter in the skin as well as a considerable acidity and moderate alcohol content. After destemming the grapes, we let the grapes 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. Subsequently, they are assembled and bottled together with the tirage liqueur. The bottles go to 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 yeast lees. In total, the wine will spend a minimum of 9 months in the cellar, after which it is stirred and disgorged. Subsequently, a quantity of expedition liquor is dosed that will determine the residual sugar content of the cava. Finally, the bottle is permanently capped with a cork stopper.
