    Winemaker Notes

    Its fresh, fruity flavor is pleasant and slightly sweet, although still within the technical range of the brut category. This wine's refreshing, light taste leads from a full, ripe peach, apricot fruit and vanilla nose, encouraging big, round, soft flavors in the mouth, with an appealing finish.

    Perfect for brunch, it is also an excellent choice when mixing champagne cocktails.

    Freixenet, Penedes, Spain
    Image of winery
    Freixenet’s vineyards are planted to take advantage of the full range of terroir and climate in the Penedès region of Catalonia, the area where most of Spain’s cavas are made. From the dry, cool mountains of the north, to the humid and warm coastal areas to the south, the vineyards bear the fruit of many varieties of Vitis vinifera. In addition to cultivating its own expansive vineyards, Freixenet also maintains exclusive relationships with vine growers throughout the region.

    Freixenet wines reflect the excellent chalky soils and prime growing conditions that shape the character of each bottle.

    Freixenet winemaker Josep Bujan gives his all to the wines, blending technology, tradition and a deep understanding of the Penedès terroir. One of Spain’s premier enologists, Josep is active and connected in the international wine industry, and mentors a number of young winemakers. His work draws from deep winemaking heritage reaching back to the original yeast strains developed by Dolores Ferrer, many of which are still in use today.

    Our cavas have benefited from his knowledge for more than three decades, making Josep an integral part of the Freixenet family and the success of Freixenet wines. His commitment to quality and consistency has enabled Freixenet to become the world’s leading cava producer.

    A superior source of white grapes for the production of Spain’s prized sparkling wine, Cava, the Penedes region is part of Catalunya and sits just south of Barcelona. Medio Penedès is the most productive source of the Cava grapes, Macabeo, Xarel-lo, and Parellada. Penedes also grows Garnacha and Tempranillo (here called Ull de Llebre in Catalan) for high quality reds and rosès.

    Champagne & Sparkling

    View all wine

    Equal parts festive and food-friendly, sparkling wine is beloved for its lively bubbles and appealing aesthetics. Though it is often thought of as something to be reserved for celebrations, sparkling wine can be enjoyed on any occasion—and might just make the regular ones feel a bit more special. Sparkling wine is made throughout the world, but can only be called “Champagne” if it comes from the Champagne region of France. Other regions have their own specialties, like Prosecco in Italy and Cava in Spain. Sweet or dry, white or rosé (or even red!), lightly fizzy or fully sparkling, there is a style of bubbly wine to suit every palate.

    The bubbles in sparkling wine are formed when the base wine undergoes a secondary fermentation, trapping carbon dioxide inside the bottle or fermentation vessel. Champagne, Cava and many other sparkling wines (particularly in the New World) are made using the “traditional method,” in which the second fermentation takes place inside the bottle. With this method, dead yeast cells remain in contact with the wine during bottle aging, giving it a creamy mouthful and toasty flavors. For Prosecco, the carbonation process occurs in a stainless steel tank to preserve the fresh fruity and floral aromas preferred for this style of wine.
