What differences are there between cava, champagne, and sparkling wine?
Sparkling wine is a general term that refers to any wine with bubbles, it can be produced anywhere in the world and can be made with different varieties of grapes and methods. The best-known sparkling wines are Cava belonging mainly to the Penedès wine region, Champagne from the Champagne wine region in France, Prosecco from Italy and the recent Corpinnat and Clàssic Penedès denominations also born from the heart of the Penedès.
Cava is a sparkling wine that is made in Spain using the traditional method, also known as the champagne method. It is made mainly from Macabeo, Parellada and Xarel·lo grapes. The production process involves a second fermentation in the bottle, which gives Cava its characteristic flavour and aroma.
Champagne is a type of sparkling wine produced in the Champagne region of France. It is made with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes, using the Champenoise method. The production process is like that of Cava, but a longer second fermentation is required, which makes it more expensive.
