Codorníu is a major producer of Cava, second only to Freixenet in production volume. The origins of Codorníu date back to the 16th Century and it was one of the first companies to produce Cava commercially. The company remains under family ownership. Cava is Codorníu’s main focus, but the company also produces a range of still wines and owns an 88% share of Bodegas Bilbaínas in DOC Rioja. Codorníu’s production plant is located in Sant Sadurní d’Anoia in Catalonia and the company operates approximately 3,410 hectares of vineyards in Spain (Euromonitor, April 2012). Approximately 50% of the company’s production is sold domestically, and 50% is exported. Within their Cava range alone, Codorníu produce both white and rosé wines, in a variety of quality levels and using both traditional and international grape varieties.
