Castillo Perelada Cava "Stars" Brut NatureSince 1987, every summer Castillo Perelada hosts one of the most prestigious music festivals in Europe. This cava is a tribute to all the artists who, year after year, honor us with their presence, shining like the stars of the Emporda sky under which they perform.
"Be glad of life because it gives you the chance to love and to work and to play and to look up at the stars." Henry van Dyke (1852-1933)
Designation of Origin: Cava, a sparkling wine which is made following the traditional method, has fully established its identity in m arkets abroad in the last thirty years. Native grapes, a warm climate and the growing country all contribute to its distinctive character. Cava's name derives from the Spanish word for an underground cellar, which became the term for the production method.
Winemaking: Temperature controlled fermentation of the first must.
Ageing: A minimum of twelve months in bottle, before disgorging.
Tasting note: Pale yellow color, crystalline and bright. Its generous stream of fine bubbles forms a perfect crown. In the nose, it is clean, with fruity notes and some slight ageing notes. Dry, smooth and complex in the mouth, it has a great tasting balance.

Wine has been made at the Castillo Perelada since the Middle Ages, as shown in several documents and parchments from the period to be found in the library. When Miguel Mateu bought this ensemble of monuments in 1923, one of his primary objectives was to revitalize the wine producing tradition, a tradition that is more alive than ever these days and which has incorporated the most modern technology to create wines that make full use of the nuances of the soils and vines of the Empordà.
El Empordà is a small area where there is a variety of soils found in few other places in the world. Slate slopes, Sandy valleys. Fluvial sediment, clay-silt, gravel soils… Lands that have borne witness to how different civilizations cultivated the art of wine. The heterogeneity of the land on which the vines grow allows the Castillo Perelada to obtain grapes with a wide range of nuances. View Castillo Perelada Website >>
