Did you know?
… Up to the 1980s Cava was called Xampanya – the Catalan word for Champagne – as it is produced in the same method like the French sparkling wine. Due to the protection of the name of the Champagne region the EU obliged Catalan wine makers to use a different designation. This was the moment when the name Cava was born. In Catalan it means cave or cellar, thus the storage place of the bottles.
… that on weekdays you can find great lunch menus for a very decent price? Introduced in 1965 by the government by law it has now become a custom to offer a 3-course-menu including bread and wine for a reasonable price. In Barcelona there are many places that offer good value for around 12 Euros.
… The most exlusive Cava´s need to be stored at a constant temperature of around 18 degrees celsius. The very special ones need to be in a horizontal position to maximize the contact of the wine with the yeast. The bottles will then be turned a little bit every day. This is one of the reasons why certain types of cava´s can be much more expensive.
