Cava, the darling of sommeliers and bartenders around the world, is a relatively new player in the sparkling wine game, but has made up for lost time and now represents just under 10% of all sparkling wine internationally – standing apart in its authenticity, variety and quality.
29 September @ 5 p.m. (BST)
A deep dive into the nine principal grape varieties of Cava, with a focus on the classic indigenous trio that have traditionally defined Cava winemaking: Macabeo, Xarel·lo and Parellada. The panel will discuss what these different grapes bring to the Cava blends, and how they work with each of the varieties, how their selection of grape varieties has changed over the years (including the adoption of international varieties), and the impact those choices have made in the styles of Cava they produce.
