CAVA and Catalunia

22 avril 2017

Love a glass of bubbly? Cava, the wonderful Catalan sparkling wine, is a staple of the local gastronomy and culture.

The area has a long winemaking tradition and was the birthplace of the sparkling wine Cava, invented in the early 1870s in Sant Sadurní d’Anoia by Josep Raventos of Codorníu Winery. At the turn of the 20th century, the Catalan wine industry was at the forefront of Spain’s emergence as a world leader in quality wine production, being the first Spanish wine region to adopt the use of stainless steel fermentation tanks. The area is also an important cork production region, with output aimed primarily at the region’s Cava houses.

Cava finally is being recognised for the wonderful drink that it is
