 ABOUT CAVA

While Cava can be made in several regions throughout Spain, 95% is made with grapes from the limestone soils of Penedés D.O. (45 minutes southwest of Barcelona) with vines planted as high up as 2,800 feet. Cava grapes at those altitudes can be intensely tart, more akin to the structure of Champagne than the fat–styled sparkling wines California tends to produce. Unlike other sparkling wines like Prosecco, Cava is always produced using the Champagnois Method, where the secondary fermentation takes place in the bottle.
