A new organic project from Maria Barrena, one of the partners at Azul y Garanza in Navarra. The Cava is from her family vineyards planted over 50 years ago in the Baix Penedès area, close to the Mediterranean sea. There are 25 hectares of vineyards of Xarel.lo, Macabeu, Parellada and Chardonnay planted between 300 and 350 meters altitude. The old vines are surrounded by rich biodiversity, encouraging natural balance to be found in both the vineyards and the wine.
CAVA | In 1872, Josep Raventós began experimenting with Spanish wines made in the same manner as was being done in Champagne, France – and hence, CAVA was born. But unlike Champagne, the DO Cava designation is defined by a specific practice of winemaking, rather than a region where wine is made. There are over six regions with the DO Cava status, though over 90% of production is from the Penedès region.
