We Love Cava, The Spanish Champagne

Nothing says summer better than sparkling wines. One of our favorite categories is Cava, the Spanish bubbles.

Cava - The Spanish Champagne
A toast, in Spain, is practically always drunk with cava, the Spanish sparkling wine made by the champagne method. This is especially true when the New Year is brought in with the twelve grapes swallowed in time to the chimes of the clock in the town square or in the Puerta del Sol, Madrid.
Cava, made by the Champagne method, is a very acceptable alternative to French champagne and, it should be said, much better value for money. Almost all cava is produced in Catalonia, especially the Pened├ęs region, although eight different provinces are included in the production area.

Our Cava's at Aroma Thyme Bistro:

Dibon Brut Reserve:
We fell in love with from the first sip. We were at a wine tasting in NYC and picked it out of 20 or so sparkling wines.
We have this in stock as of April 17th, 2008. At around $30 it is a great value!
