What does "Cava" mean?

The word "Cava" (not to be confused with "Kava", used as a ceremonial drink in Melanesian cultures) is derived from the Latin word for "Cave". Freixenet has some 54kms of underground limestone caves which contain at any one time, over 120 million bottles of Cava. The Spanish use this term in the same way that the French use the term "Champagne" in that it is used to describe the region, the winery, the process and the product itself. The Freixenet Group export 80% of all Cava in Spain. Freixenet is the largest selling brand of sparkling wine in the world and can be found in over 150 countries.
 
 
Why should I buy Freixenet?

The important thing to understand is that quality in sparkling wines is a result of a particular type of production and is not necessarily dependent on a region or country. Higher quality sparkling wines undergo a secondary fermentation in the bottle. The general rule of thumb is 'the longer in the bottle the better'.
 
 
How is Freixenet made?

Freixenet uses only hand picked grapes. First fermentation takes place in stainless tanks with our own Freixenet yeast cultures. Freixenet is then transferred to the bottle for secondary fermentation and is stored in limestone caves on yeast lees for 18 – 24 months. The yeast turns the sugar into alcohol and carbon dioxide which in turn gives our sparkling its bubbles. Freixenet has a unique taste as it uses indigenous grapes in the Penedes region. Lower quality sparkling wines can be fermented in a bottle (but transferred into a tank, blended and rebottled); bulk fermented in large vats, or is simply infused with carbon dioxide. All Freixenet products have been fermented in the bottle you buy. You will notice immediately, the difference in the weight of a Freixenet bottle compared to the competition (Freixenet has thicker glass as this is needed during the secondary fermentation process).
