The Wine

Land of wines and cavas.

In this part of Catalonia the local wines and cavas are of an exceptional quality and are recognised throughout the world. The wines of Penedès are mostly made from traditional grape varieties, but other grapes have been introduced lately. Most of the wines are young and offer great aromatic qualities. The whites are usually very fruity and fresh. The reds are full-bodied, aromatic and intense in colour.

Cava is a naturally sparkling wine with an unmistakable flavour. This is the prime wine for toasting and celebrations, the wine for those important occasions in our lives. But it is also the wine of intimacy, for sipping in the afternoon when everything has just begun, and last thing at night when everything is possible. This ensures that your cava moments are always magical.
