Let’s learn more about Cava…

What is Cava?

Simply put, Cava is sparkling wine from Spain crafted in the Champagne method.

Where is Cava from?

Cava is from Spain. Our Cava comes from the Penendes region of Northern Spain, where mild temperatures and moderate rainfall create ideal grape-growing conditions.

How is Cava made?

Cava is made using the traditional Champagne method, which means that it undergoes a second fermentation in bottle. Our Cava is aged for 9 months in bottle, creating fine bubbles and a rich, complex flavor profile. The end result is a delicious, crisp yet creamy sparkler with a soft finish.

What grape is Cava?

We use a blend of Spanish grapes to craft our Cava: Macabeu, Paralleda, Xarello.

What does Cava taste like?

Cava delights any palate with fine bubbles and creamy flavors of lemon mousse, baked pear, and toasted brioche.

Is Cava sweet?

Cava is dryer than other sparkling wines, meaning its not very sweet.

How should I serve Cava?

Cava should be served chilled. We recommend chilling in the fridge, and then letting it rest at room temperature for approximately 10 minutes before serving. This allows the wine to warm up ever so slightly, so the flavors are a bit more intense.

What pairs well with Cava?

Cava sparkling wine is versatile with food because it is well-balanced, leaving you wanting another sip. Pair Cava with paella, garlic pan-seared shrimp, or alongside warm nights with friends.

Is Cava good for mimosas?

Absolutely – Cava is wonderful on its own, and an excellent choice for Sunday brunch mimosas.
