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 organic grapes are harvested on different days from the rest of the grapes to avoid any contact of the organic grapes and must with the rest of our production.
The material used in the winery is separated from the rest and the fermentation tanks are specially marked. Both the oenological products used throughout the production process and the different stages carried out guarantee the organic designation of origin.
The vineyards that produce Codorníu Cuvée Original are certified ECO (European Standard) and NOP (National Organic Program, USA).
The Macabeo and Parellada varietals are located in the Alt Penedès and located in the Alto Penedés region and the Xarel-lo in the Xarel-lo in the Central Penedés. The low yields per hectare guarantee the maximum quality of the grapes (8,500-9,000 kg/ha, the maximum allowed is 12,000 kg/ha).
