Cava recipes

Cava

Cava is a Spanish sparkling wine produced in the same meticulous way as champagne. It is much less costly than Champagne and just as reliable, although the local Spanish grapes tend to give a much more simple, neutral style of wine.

Storage

Store in a cool cellar or the fridge.

Preparation

Serve well chilled.
