About Cavas Codorníu Winery Guided Tours

Caves Codorníu is the oldest winery and family run business in Spain, being founded in 1551 and having over 450 years of history. Codorníu winery is the most visited wine cellar in Spain and the first to produce Cava (Spanish sparkling wine) in Catalonia.

Codorníu Cavas Aging Process

The bottles settle in the cellars for at least nine months. The different styles of cava depend on the period of ageing.

Codorníu Underground Cavas

Beneath the modernist art nouveau Codorníu surface buildings is an underground labyrinth of brick lined cellars spread out over five floors. For over a century now the second fermentation and aging process is done in the cellars because of the constant cool temperature.

Codorníu Vineyards

Each grape variety is different and requires a specific climate and soil so Codorníu has three vineyard areas and uses sustainable viticultural techniques.
