The main objective of the Cava Academy is to train professionals from the world of wine and Cava lovers, allowing them to expand their knowledge of Cava. This is the only specific training course on Cava offered by the Cava Designation of Origin.

"Cava Academy has given me the opportunity to gain an in-depth understanding of the Cava D.O., as well as valuable information which has helped me translate my knowledge and enthusiasm into tools to improve my clients' experience of Cava."


The first Cava Academy experience started in London in 2018, and afterwards it spread to other locations such as Belgium, Tokyo and New York. Since its inception, the Cava Academy has trained hundreds of Cava Ambassadors around the world.

"A real Masterclass on one of the most promising wine regions in the world. It has allowed us to gain the confidence to present Cavas in our restaurant."
