Spain has been producing sparkling wine (Cava) for more than one hundred years. Cava shares with Champagne the same elaboration method but has completely differentiated characteristics stemming from the use of Spanish indigenous grapes (Macabeo, Xarel-lo and Parellada) and the influence of the Mediterranean climate and soil.
Within Spain, the production of Cava is mainly concentrated in the Sant Sadurni de Noia region of Catalonia.
