One of the first things you might be asking yourself while reading the title is: what is cava?
Cava is a sparkling wine, produced in Spain, most of it in Catalonia. One can find two types of catalan cava in the market, the white one (blanc) or the rosé (rosat).
For some time it was referred as Spanish Champagne, due to the similarities with the french drink, but nowadays the Cava has it’s own Designation of Origin (DO). As said, most of the production is held in Catalonia, about 90 to 95%, so it’s a very important economic motor for the Penedes region.
This wine dates around 1850’s and since then has become a hugely important part of the sector in the economy of Catalonia. There are two main producers with international success: Codorniú and Freixenet.
The two companies are located and were born in Catalonia. And since the 1970’s they have been experiencing great international success with several of their drinks.
