SONOMA, CA, September 29, 2021 — Cava Discovery Week in the US will launch on Saturday, October 9, marking the start of a week-long series of celebrations for wine lovers across the city to sample an array of the best quality Cava at a fine selection of restaurants and bars.

This is the second time that Cava Discovery Week has run in the US and the aim of the week is to educate wine lovers about Cava and spotlight the versatility of this high-quality Spanish sparkling wine. Produced using Spanish grapes in the traditional method, Cava is available in a variety of styles, with the aging time dictating the category: Cava de Guarda, with a minimum of 9 months; Cava de Guarda Superior, more than 15 months (Reserva), 30 months (Gran Reserva), or the highly prestigious Cava de Paraje Calificado, aged for more than 36 months. The world-renowned production style lends itself to an increased complexity and finesse, while the unique and native grape varieties used in Cava, such as Macabeo, Parellada, and Xarel-lo, bring a unique Mediterranean characteristic to the wine.

From Saturday 9th to Sunday 17th October, restaurant venues across New York City – including the celebrated Casa Mono & Bar Jamòn, Huertas, Contento, Francie, Mercado Little Spain, Veranda, Tomiño Taberna Gallega, Boro6 Wine Bar, Despaña Soho, and retail partner Gary’s Wine & Marketplace – will join a US-wide campaign to champion Cava as a high-quality Spanish sparkling wine that is incredibly versatile when paired with food. For nine straight days, these restaurant partners will offer a diverse selection of Cavas for diners to try by-the-glass as well as exciting food pairing suggestions to provide new tasting experiences for the bold. Although Cava is well-suited for Spanish and Mediterranean food menus, the program will showcase brand new ideas for food pairings with unexpected cuisines that aren’t always associated with Spanish or sparkling wine.

In addition to these special in-house promotions, social media competitions and giveaways and online events will fuel digital engagement of Cava enthusiasts across the U.S.A.
