Studying Cava


Students of Cava will know that the eponymous two names above are seriously big hitters in the world of Spain’s famous sparkling wines.
For, approaching 140 years, these two names have been inextricably linked with Cava – the latter because it was in fact a same family Raventós that started the bubbles rolling towards the end of the 19th century, and the latter, linked by marriage with the former, because it is one of the two best known Cava producers in the world.
You can imagine my delight therefore when I received recently the first of a number of samples from this large group, which is another example of how big is beautiful in the wine world of Spain. However, I’m not going to start today’s ‘Cork Talk’-ing about fizz – it’s perhaps not so well known that these great names and this impressive company also make still wines.
