Cava is a sparkling wine form Spain. Its a less sweet, more refreshing, lighter version of Champagne. I just recently tried it and instantly fell in Love! You can drink it by itself or in an array of cocktails. Don't let its light, refreshing taste fool you its pretty strong.
Cava is made in the Penedes region of Catalonia, Spain. Cava means cellar in Catalan. The Pendes region is an area of predominantly rocky terrain, and has been home to vineyards since the Greeks settled there in antiquity.
Cava was created in 1872 by Joseph Raventós.
