ABOUT THIS WINE

Located in Sant Sadurní d'Anoia, in the Penedès region of Catalonia, Spain, this sparkling wine is made using the traditional method, also known as the Méthode Champenoise, which involves a secondary fermentation in the bottle to produce the bubbles.

The blend for this Cava is 40% Xarel·lo, 40% Macabeo, 15% Chardonnay, 5% Parellada, with the grapes coming from vineyards located at high altitudes to provide freshness and acidity to the wine. The wine is aged for over 4 years on its lees, which gives it a complex and creamy character, with notes of citrus, brioche, and toasted nuts.

Gramona Imperial is particularly versatile and can be enjoyed throughout the meal, from the aperitif through to the digestif.

ABOUT THIS PRODUCER

Gramona’s history is long and storied, and the property has been a quality reference point in the zone for decades. As far back as 1816 a member of the family has been making wine in Penedes. Today, Gramona is one of the few remaining family-owned estates in the region, with many having been bought by large companies. Gramona is located in the Penedes region of Spain just 45 minutes from Barcelona along Spain's Mediterranean coast. The Climate in Penedes is mild and warm, benefiting mostly from a Mediterranean influence. However, as the differences in elevation are quite dramatic (with some vines at over 700 meters), there are many microclimates in the zone.

The touch of ‘expedition liqueur’ from their solera, which is well over a century old, gives this cava Gramona's unmistakable signature, a symbol of elegance that has made this cava a classic for its loyal drinkers.
