The Cava Appellation has gathered some of the world's most influential prescribers at the international congress Cava Meeting, held in Barcelona on November 27th and 28th, and Alta Alella cavas have had a prominent presence with representation in all the tastings.
A hundred guests from different countries have embarked for two days on a "journey to the excellence of cava" with the first edition of the Cava Meeting. The congress, designed by a committee of renowned wine experts -the Master of Wine Sarah Jane Evans and Pedro Ballesteros, the well-known sommelier Ferran Centelles, and the specialized journalist and cava educator Ramon Francàs- has presented to the world the versatility and quality of cava through different conferences and tastings. A special attention has been given to the Integral Producers (Alta Alella is one of the 15 wineries with the quality and traceability stamp, out of the more than 300 that are part of the appellation), Cava de Paraje Calificado (Alta Alella produces two cavas from the Vallcirera vineyard), and the zonification of cava (with Alta Alella representing the Serra de Mar territory).
