Why Cava? 

According to Sipsource Data from 2023, Cava has enjoyed significant growth in higher price tiers, signaling ongoing premiumization for the category. In June 2023, Cava on-premise sales were up 4% from year prior, while other traditional method sparkling categories declined. With an average alcohol of 11% and regulations requiring all Cava de Guarda Superior wines to be made from 100% organic grapes by 2025, Cava is well situated to respond to rising trends towards lower alcohol and consumer interest in sustainable products.
