Artesa is the work of the Codorníu Raventós family, renowned Spanish winemakers whose roots in the Penedes region near Barcelona date back to 1551. The family purchased this hillside property in the ‘80s and opened to the public in 1991. The winery’s name, Artesa, is Catalan for “handcrafted,” a nod to the family’s style of single-estate wines. (In particular, Artesa is known for Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet Sauvignon, but it also nods to its Spanish roots with a crisp Albariño.) The design-savvy tasting room, designed by Barcelona architect Domingo Triay, features an in-the-round bar adorned with Catalan tile. The room overlooks the rest of the 350-acre estate, offering a birds-eye view of the rolling countryside. Wine pairings are popular here, whether that’s chocolate, cheese, or tapas.
