Biodynamic Wine Dinner and Seminar with Josep Raventós of Raventós i Blanc

Join us at Blind Bishop for an evening with Josep Raventós of Raventós i Blanc where we will learn about Raventós i Blanc’s biodynamic agricultural practices and sample the wines produced from their sustainable farm estate.

Only the Native Grape Varieties

Raventós uses only varieties of grapes that are native to the Penedès region of Catalonia where the Raventós i Blanc estate resides. Xarel-lo, Paredella, Macabeu, and Monestrell are some of the grapes that are recurring in Raventós i Blanc’s biodynamic wines.

Better Than Cava DO?

The Raventós i Blanc estate is currently advocating for its own appellation, Conca del Riu Anoia, with much stricter requirements than the Cava DO. This would result in lower yields and higher aging time on the lees, which translate into more concentrated and complex flavors.

Biodynamics

Raventós i Blanc adheres to innovative biodynamic practices, and our guest speaker, Josep, is deeply passionate about how the vineyards and the winery are managed. Josep will share his vast knowledge about Raventós i Blanc’s sustainable, self-sufficient estate that boasts a wide range of biodiversity, producing a rich, structured soil.

Step Into Conca del Riu Anoia

Throughout the evening, you will become familiar with biodynamics, taste the sustainably made wines, and come to appreciate the difference made by biodynamic agriculture. This is an opportunity to learn more about Conca del Riu Anoia and the current landscape of Catalonia directly from those who are shaping this potentially new appellation.

Event Information:

Please arrive at 6:30pm for a presentation by Josep Raventós accompanied by a seminar and tasting through the first few wines. Then, we’ll move on to dinner, which features four dishes paired with four Raventós wines. There will be ample opportunity to ask any questions you may have both during and after the presentation.
