REGION: Penedes, Spain
This Catalan region, neighbouring Barcelona is known for producing quality grapes that fit perfectly with the Mediterranean food culture of the area. Xarel-lo is one of the principal varieties used in producing Cava, and gives it that particular honeyed, yet tangy style. Joan Segura Pujadas is a tiny bodegas concentrating on amazing fruit, and we stock their fantastic Cava too. As a still wine, it's got loads of character - a real bite to it, so it's perfect for seafood.
