We're proud to list a great selection of Cava Hong Kong. This is a distinctive sparkling wine from the Catalonian region of Spain. Not named for the region, Cava comes from the old word for cave or cellar where wines were stored. The name was officially chosen for the wine after the French began to protest to the use of 'Champagne' on wines that were not from the region. Prior to this, much Cava was labeled as Spanish Champagne! The vast majority of Cava comes from the Penedès region in Catalonia, around the town of San Sadurní de Noya, though the rules surrounding the Cava Denominación de Origen (DO) allow it to be produced in a number of northerly regions. Produced either white or rosé, Cava is composed of many grapes, but usually just the Macabeo (spelled macabeu in Catalan), Xarel-lo, and Parellada varietals. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are becoming more accepted in Cava. For rosé styles, producers will add red grapes like Pinot Noir, Cabernet, or Mouvedre for color. Cava is produced in the traditional method, which was formerly known as the méthode champenoise for its use in Champagne. This sets Cava apart from Prosecco and other wines made with the Charmat method. Cava producers in the 19th century brought French methods to Catalonia. Like Champagne, Cava is back-sweetened and labeled according to the amount from dry to sweet: brut nature, brut, brut reserve, seco, semi-seco, and dolç.
