Cava happens to be one of my favorite styles of sparkling wine and is a wine you will always find in my wine fridge no matter the season. Cava can and should be enjoyed year round and pairs with many foods you enjoy. Skip the usual wines you “always choose” this season and try some cava!

What was the Cava of choice at this fun bubble filled event? Pere Ventura Tresor Brut Cava: a stunning wine full of citrus, tropical fruit notes, some brioche and nice acidity. Pere Ventura is one of the top cava producers and the wines are not only unbelievably beautiful, quality driven, and made in the Champagne style, but for around $15.00 they are an absolute steal and should be opened for every occasion.

*Note this Cava on my Top Fall Wines under $15.00!!
