Review: El Bon Cava

The other week my friends at Institut del Cava sent me the book El Bon Cava by Jordi Melendo. Bild Jordi Melendo has a vast experience when it comes to sparkling wine and has for the last 25 years visited numerous producers around the world. Even though he is very focused on champagne and says himself that the has a special weakness for the sparkling wines from Italy's Franciacorta, his roots are unmistakably in Penedés.

El Bon Cava is a short guide to 53 producers of Penedés that all have a special place in Jordi's heart. Two pages for each producer with short facts that are given in, Catalan, Spanish and English. It is personally written and all the needed facts of addresses, bottles produced per year, founding year etc. etc.

I really like this convenient and small guide. Many of the producers that we have visited the last years are portrayed in the book and I have also found some that we will try to visit now when we go down in September.

Unfortunately I don't know how difficult it is to get your hands on this guide if you want it, but you can always try to search on the ISBN: 978-84-616-3829-1
