What You Need To Know
Cava, which refers to the caves where the bottles mature, is the catchall term for sparkling wine in Spain. This cava, whose name is inspired by Barcelona’s central market (mercat), spends a minimum of 18 months in the caves of El Xamfra to develop its creamy texture. While cava can be produced anywhere in Spain, the Penedès region, just outside of Barcelona, is the center of production, as its temperate, breezy climate and chalky soils are perfect for making sparklers with verve and finesse.
