One of Spain?s first wine families, Codorniu has for more than 450 years produced some of the country?s finest wines. The winery enjoys a storied past and exciting future. A royal supplier to the Spanish Crown since 1897, Codorniu?s unique winery and aging cellars are a protected Historical Artistic Monument. In addition to pioneering the use of mechanical harvesting, Codorniu recognized, early on, that Chardonnay and Pinot Noir add to flavor and quality and introduced them to the traditional cava blend. Today, the winery leads Spain?s wine industry in the development of new technologies, research and practices. In 450 years, Codorniu has never compromised on quality. The winery counts on the prestige and experience of its winemakers, who are among Spain?s leading professionals and experts in their field. Codorniu cavas are only made from grapes coming from vineyards owned and managed by the family or from long-term suppliers as part of a viticultural cooperation program. Overseeing the farming and harvesting of more than 15,000 acres of vineyards and receiving and vinifying almost 40,000 tons of grapes for its base wines, Codorniu is a guarantee of quality.
