Dominio De Tharsys pairs perfectly with the summer! 

Good news! Cava (Spanish Sparkling Wines) can rival sparkling wines from France in complex flavors and aromas yet be enjoyed at a much lower price!

Can you imagine a summer without sparkling wine? I can’t! Once the cork is popped on this delightful Cava, the golden bubbles climb up the flute to escape and release complex aromas of floral white flowers, tangerine, lemons and shortbread. Once you have  taken a sip, the dry, clean and crisp acidity wakes up your mouth and palate. The luscious creamy finish is due to the classic method champenoise or “fermentation in the bottle.” Grapes native to Spain are used in the production of Cava as well a chardonnay for additional flavor and structure.
