The history of Raimat goes back to 1914 when Manel Raventós y Doménech, the owner of Codorníu, acquired some arid and unfertile lands to convert them into what is today Europe’s largest vineyard estate in the hands of one family. A unique setting, with pure snow melt water from the Pyrenees, is now home to the Raimat modernist winery and its sustainable and organic-certified vineyards.
Raimat is one of the leaders in sustainable viticulture and successfully offers high quality wines with a unique personality made from grapes obtained exclusively from its own estate, always torchbearers for the maximum respect and conservation of the environment.
Raimat is the expression of the wines of Lleida, a land recognised for the quality of its fruit, where the continentality of its climate means that the grapes from this estate produces wines that are intense and full of flavour. Hunting is prohibited in the Raimat vineyards. This means that the land is brimming with life: birds, rabbits, partridges, foxes, etc., which all play a vital role in maintaining this delicate balance. The vines and the grape are part of this whole and this is why the winemaking techniques should respect this balance. La vinya i el raïm són part d’aquest conjunt i per això les tècniques de conreu han de procurar respectar aquest equilibri.
Recently the winery embarked on a new project: Raimat Natura. Its aim: for families to be able to enjoy the natural setting that is the Raimat estate. More than 700 hectares that have been established as a unique ecosystem and currently welcome over a hundred different species of flora and fauna. In Raimat Natura you can enjoy nature and healthy activities (electric bikes, Nordic walking…) unique food and drink experiences and even hot air balloon rides, all surrounded by an unrivalled landscape.
