Cava is a sparkling wine of Denominación de Origen status from Catalonia, also produced in other regions of Spain. It may be white or rosé. The macabeu, parellada and xarel·lo are the most popular and traditional grape varieties for producing it. Only wines produced in the champenoise traditional method may be labelled “cava”; those produced by other processes may only be called “sparkling wines”. About 95% of all cavas is produced in the Penedès area in Catalonia, with the village of Sant Sadurní d’Anoia being home to many of Spain’s largest production houses. The two major producers are Codorníu and Freixenet. Cava is also produced in other villages in Aragon, Castile and León, Extremadura, La Rioja, Basque Country, Navarre and Valencia.
