The vineyard, the landscape, the climate, and the terroir are the four essential elements in the origin of Cava. The grapes grow under the watchful eye of the winemaker, as their growth cycle develops from budding shoot to mature fruit, with the careful nurturing required in each season of the year. This is merely the beginning of a complex and fascinating process: the end result is a high-quality sparkling wine, capable of seducing a wide variety of palates.
The growth cycles of the vines fill the landscape with colour as the seasons pass, marking the different stages and processes that need constant human oversight. Everything must follow its correct course to ensure the quality of the fruit, which is the essence of, and indispensable ingredient for, a great Cava. At the same time, the land is always treated with the utmost respect, and is managed sustainably.
Of course, the culmination of all these factors is the harvest, the moment when the grapes reach maturity; each variety has its own peculiarities and rhythms. This is followed by the production process: the great secret of Cava, and what sets it apart from most other sparkling wines around the world. This traditional method is what confers on Cava its main characteristics, and its excellence.
