The Begur Experience

Begur Costa Brava what to do and where to go.

Cava

Raventos i Blanc: Vertical TastingYou must try the cava when you visit Catalonia. A glass of cava and some tapas watching the sun sink like a ball of flames into the sea is one of life’s greatest joys!

Spain produces many fine sparkling wines, called cava after the cellars in which the wine is produced. These wines are made in the “méthode champenoise” or “Champagne method,” which is the same method that is used to make Champagne.

History lesson over! Cava can be as inexpensive as water so splurge a bit and pay a bit more you wont regret it and your head will thank you the next day!
