Codorniu Anna de Codorniu Cava Blanc de Blancs
Anna, our tribute to the last member of the family to take the Codorníu surname, has become our most emblematic cava. Brilliant yellow color with green reflections. Fine, persistent bubbles forming continuous beads. Citrusy and tropical fruit notes on the nose, along with more complex ageing aromas (toast, brioche). Creamy on the palate, wide and long-lasting. It is highly versatile and easy to pair with a great variety of food.
Blend: Chardonnay, Parellada, Macabeo & Xarel-lo

Tradition and innovation since 1551.
Codorníu is the story of a family that runs back to the XVI century. Backed by the work of 18 successive generations, Codorníu is the most longstanding family business in Spain and the 17th oldest in the world. In 1872 Josep Raventós became a pioneer in cava making when he crafted his first bottle of sparkling wine applying the traditional method.
The impressive Cavas Codorníu in Sant Sadurní d’Anoia, where Codorniu's cavas are made, were built in 1895 by Manuel Raventós, the heir and chief promoter of Codorníu; who hired the Catalan art nouveau architect, Josep Puig i Cadafalch, to enlarge the winery. It was declared Artistic Historical Site in 1976, and it is one of the most impressive examples of art nouveau architecture dedicated to making and aging cava.
Codorniu is not only the creator of cava but also a forerunner in the use of new varietals, aiming to honor their pioneering spirit. Their cavas have a common denominator: maximum quality, fresh and modern style, and focus on keeping the essence of each grape variety.
