In Search of Cavas, Phylloxera Is Celebrated

Phylloxera is an insect that, in most areas of the world, has destroyed grape vines. The villain of vineyards is celebrated; however, in a small town in the Penedés region of Catalonia, Spain. While on our search for Cavas, we stopped by the museum Centro de Interpretación de Cava (CIC). The town Sant Sadurní d’Anoia is referred to as the capital of Cava. There are many Cava producers there and most of the Cava is produced there. The ultra-modern multi-sensory museum makes sense. Celebrating the insect that destroyed vineyards in the region though does not.
