The Cordorníu family first began to produce wines back in 1551. The family name disappeared in the 1600s, though, when Anna Cordorníu married Miquel Raventós. Their descendant, Josep Raventós, clearly retained those centuries of wine knowledge in his veins when he pioneered the production of the first Spanish sparkling wines using traditional methods.
The company has been known for both its high-quality still and sparkling wines ever since. To commemorate the founding of this fine company, it has released Cordorníu 1551, in honour of the year that it all began. The inclusion of the three traditional varieties of cava grapes in this cava is a nod to the tradition that the house itself helped create. Macabeo offers soft fruit and Parellada adds elegance while Xarel·lo brings structure. The result is a beautifully straw-yellow Brut cava.
Celebrate the birth of a brand and the birth of cava itself with a bottle of this delightful release. Cordorníu 1551 is a wonderful addition to the fine line of products offered by the company. This sparkling wine is fresh and light enough to be enjoyed before a meal as a refreshing aperitif but also has enough personality to hold its own during a tapas course. Enjoy the taste of Cordorníu's centuries of achievement with a bottle of 1551 at your next special occasion.
