Codorníu Cuvée Original is made in homage to the first bottle of Cava in history, created in 1872 by Josep Raventós. It also shows our commitment to sustainability as it contains the original proportions of Macabeo, Xarel·lo and Parellada, now grown using organic farming.  Two good reasons to continue to raise a toast with Codorníu Original in both its Brut and Demi-Sec versions.  What occasion do you think it deserves?

The Winery

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.

Elaboration - Vinification

ln order to avoid any contact between the organic grapes and musts and the rest of our production, these grapes are picked on different days to the rest of our grape harvest.
