Production areaHails from the Penedes region where the Mediterranean climate has mild winters and warm summers.
BackgroundBarcelona, the cosmopolitan capital of Spain's Catalonia region, is defined by unique art and architecture, imaginative food and vibrant street life. It has medieval roots, seen in the mazelike Gothic Quarter, but a modernist personality represented by architect Antoni Gaud's fantastical Sagrada Famlia church. Its restaurant scene, anchored by the central Boqueria market, ranges from fine dining to tiny tapas bars.From Barcelona, where the classic and the fashionable intermingle, comes CHIC Barcelona, a fresh and crisp cava, perfect for transforming any occasion into a CHIC celebration. Cava, meaning cave, is Spanish sparkling wine made in the Traditional, or Champagne Method. 95% of Cava is produced in the Penedes Region of Spain and holds DO certification. The climate is Mediterranean with continental influences, meaning that it tends to have cold winters and slightly mild summers, resulting in a slower maturation of the grapes which, in turn, produces full and fresh wines.
VinificationEach variety is hand-harvested. The grapes are then de-stemmed separately and the pulp is cooled to 57º F before a gentle pressing with a pneumatic pump.
