With the holidays approaching, it’s a good time to start thinking about stocking up on Spanish Cava. Of course there are many brands and types of Cava to choose from, ranging from those made by small winemakers to internationally operating large-scale wineries.

Don’t know where to start? The following three Spanish wineries will most certainly ring a bell among Cava lovers throughout the world, as they are not only historic wine making houses, but also important producers in terms of Spanish Cava exports.

Juvé & Camps is a hundred-year old family winery in the Penedés region (Catalonia) whose wines can be found all over the world in countries including Germany and Switzerland, the US, Great Britain, Japan  and Venezuela. The Reserva de la Familia, Brut Nature is especially beloved by many over the holidays.

Founded in the late 1800’s in Sant Sadurní d’Anoia, Freixinet has been known to boast annual sales of half a billion euros – the equivalent of more than 202 million bottles of Cava, more than half of which were destined for export.

Also in Penedés, Grupo Cordoníu has also been making Cava for well over one-hundred years. Although the Group is highly diversified into various wine regions, Cordoníu Cava is still made by the same family, and exported all over the world.
