The celebratory tipple of choice in Spain is cava, a sparkling white or rose wine from Catalonia that’s sipped in Barcelona and beyond at everything from weddings and birthday bashes to evening meals. Here are some must-try cava labels and cava tasting experiences in Barcelona.

What is Cava?
First produced in 1872 at the Codorniu Winery, cava was the brainchild of winemaker Josep Raventós, whose French travels left him with a yearning to create a Spanish version of Champagne. Blended from local xarel-lo, macabeo and parellada grapes grown in the Penedès region, the sparkling wine quickly became popular as a wine that goes with everything. Today, it’s as ubiquitous to Barcelona as flamenco and tapas. The Penedès wine region—the third largest in Spain—remains the heart and soul of cava production with more than 160 wineries growing and producing it.

Must-Do Experiences
  • Sip on some bubbly and sample tapas on a food and wine tour of Barcelona’s El Born and Gothic Quarter neighborhoods.
  • Take a day tour from Barcelona to the Spanish countryside to sample traditional cava and wine in the region where it’s grown.
  • Learn the art of cava making during a hands-on wine-making workshop in the capital of Catalonia.
  • Combine a visit to Montserrat with a tour and wine tasting in a winery’s vast cava cellars.
