Valencia Holds its 3rd Cava Fair, this Weekend !



This evening sees the start of a three-day fair celebrating Valencia´s cavas. Many associate the production of Cava in Spain with Catalonia but Requena, 80 Km to the West of Valencia provides around 5% of the National production. DO Cava is unique in Spain in being a National DO with defined geographical areas making Cava.

Ten Bodegas will show their wines.  UVÉ, Pago de Tharsys, Dominio de la Vega, Vegalfaro, Coviñas, Chozas Carrascal, Torre Oria and Hispano Suizas are part of the association of Cava Producers and they have invited Murviedro and Vegamar to participate.

The fair will be held in Colon Market, an iconic building in the centre of Valencia, not unlike London´s Covent Garden in concept.

The fair opens at 19,30 until 22.30 this evening, continues tomorrow Saturday from 12.00pm until 15.00pm and later from 19.00 until 22.30pm and again on Sunday from between 12.00-15.00pm.

Opening the press launch attended by VÍ vid, José Hidalgo , President of the Association invited Valencia to come and try some of the best cavas produced in Spain…not an idle boast but a fact backed up by a seemingly endless line of awards at International wine-fairs  and independent evaluations such as Penin, Parker and various Sumilleres associations!

Members of the public attending will be able to find the best Valencian gastronomy available to accompany the wines which cost 10€ for four tastings. Several outlets in the market will provide catering  for the public and there are three very good restaurants at least for those wanting a more substantial meal.


The fair also gives participants the opportunity to stock up with local products, cava included,  for the forthcoming Xmas festivities. Between them the 10 bodegas will show a wide range of excellent cavas including   those  from the new range of Reservas from Dominio la Vega and  Hispano+Suizas cavas which regularly come top amongst  Spanish Cavas.

As a final touch Cuchita Lluch, outgoing President of the Academy of Valencian Gastronomy was awarded the title of `Ambassador of Cavas from Requena´by the Association  in recognition of her unswerving support for everything good about Valencia and its gastronomy.
