Cavais Spain's iconic sparkling wine style, and the Iberian Peninsula's answer toChampagne. Its name comes not from a place, grape variety or winemaking technique, but from the stone cellars (cavas) in which the wine is matured.
The style was first produced in the 1870s, by a Josep Raventós, on his return to Catalonia after a visit to France. The family now does not use the Cava designation as they feel the quality of their wines surpasses the level of the Spanish sparkling wines that do use the Cava designation.
If you want a vintage rosé sparkling wine without the champagne price, this is it!
