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 plan the optimum harvest time for each variety.
We plan the optimum harvest time for each variety. After de-stemming and pressing the grapes, we obtain musts that ferment separately at a temperature between 15 and 17 ºC. Once the fermentations are finished, the wine is coupage and the resulting wine is bottled along with the tirage liqueur. The bottles carry out the second fermentation followed by a period of aging in contact with the lees of the yeasts in our underground cellars at a constant temperature (15-17 ºC) for a minimum of 9 months. This is the so-called traditional method, also used in champagne making. Finally, the degorge and the addition of the expedition liquor determines its Semi-Dry dosage.

The grapes used in the elaboration of Codorníu Gran Cremant Semi-Dry come basically from the Mediterranean climate zone of the D.O. Cava, where the autochthonous varieties show all their typicity. They are cultivated in vineyards selected by our viticulture teams that work together with our suppliers throughout the year to continuously improve the crops, carry out maturation monitoring, determine harvest times and finally, advise them so that the grapes reach our cavas in the best conditions through a quick and careful transport to the cellar.
