Product Description

This Cava is easy to drink with an oh-so-slight hint of sweetness; that could be due to the overall fruitiness of the wine that allows a perception of sugar in the wine. Bottom-line? The wine is just a joy to drink and its not difficult to do either. Cava is typically served to begin a party or meal; you know its the aperitif. I like it with the meal. Shellfish and fried-chicken are two favorites.

Region Description:

Cava began when Don Jose Raventos, traveling across Europe from Spain selling red and white wine stumbled upon a sparkling wine in the region of champagne. So fascinated by this drink, he returned to Spain and ready to attempt his own sparkler. Later importing Champagne equipment he produced the first Methode Champenoise sparkler in 1872. Using secondary fermentation like the French, Raventos had created Cava. After discussion with other winemakers in the region, it was agreed that Penedes was to become the Champagne of Spain, and the rest is history. In the present, Cava can be found brut nature to Sweet, or in rare cases a Cava rose. Note than any sparkling wine made by tank or bulk method is not a Cava.
