The current landscape of the finca Raimat has little to do with the beginning when Manuel Raventós began his dream, after the acquisition of 3.200 hectares of barren lands in Lleida. In those days the farm was just a desolate desert from which it was difficult to imagine that it could be obtained from fruit some day.
In the middle of the desert who bought the Raventós family, they erected a castle on top of a hill. A coat of arms engraved in the stone over the door, and explains the name of Raimat. In him appear to be a bunch of grapes and a hand, in Catalan, “raïm”, and “mà”, which illustrate the origin of the word Raimat.
The winery Raimat is the result of two architectural projects only. In 1918, Joan Rubió i Bellver, a disciple of the famous Gaudi, built what would be the first reinforced concrete building in Spain and in 1988, Domingo Triay would be in charge of carrying out the new and current wine cellar at Raimat.
