 #7: Cava – A Spanish Sparkling Wine

I discovered Spanish Sparkling Wines in college. They were less expensive than Champagne, but tasted just as good. Cava is named after the caves where it is traditionally made and uses the same Methode Champenoise process used to make Champagne in France.  Freixenet is a cava producer I regularly see on shelves here in California.
