the price of most Champagnes. Put that in your flute and drink it!! The other thing we love about bubbly wines is that they're great with fried foods, another of our favorite things to consume… The night will be off to a happy start if you fill your well-chilled glasses and tuck into fried mushrooms with a sweet and tangy homemade ketchup. It should have some smoked paprika in it… Butternut squash raviolis drizzled with a brown butter sage sauce will be divine with this Spanish star as a starter or an entree. Sauteed thin-sliced chicken breasts with a light shallot truffle cream sauce is a winner too. If you're doing a healthy lunch, pour a glass and savor it with arugala salad tossed with pear, shaved Parmesan and brown sugar pecans. Individual lemon tarts with a dollop of fresh whipped cream and another glass of this crazy good Cava might bring the house down.
International Wine Review:
"La Vida al Camp comes from the Raventós family, but it is a separate, distinct project from the Raventós i Blanc wines. It is blended with indigenous grapes from the region consisting of 45% Macabeu, 45% Xarel.lo, and 10% Parellada and brings aromas and flavors of lemon zest, tangerine, brioche, sulfur and smoky minerals. The mousse is fine, yet intense providing incredible energy to the wine. Lovely notes of lemon and orange zest linger on the fresh, crisp finish."
"La Vida al Camp, is a genuine CAVA, in the pure sense and qualities of a sparkling wine of the region. It is a fruit forward wine with subtle citric aromas, freshness and hints of grapefruit. It has a rich and full aftertaste. It is a perfect combination of aging aromas, a hint of fruit and a generous finish.
La Vida al Camp is inspired by the “Cabaler,” Jaume Raventós book from 1898, where he explains his childhood experiences on the farm in Sant Sadurní d’Anoia. He is an ancestor of the Raventós family and explains well what life was like on the Penedés farms at that time and how farmers in the region worked their land with respect and love for local matters.
La Vida al Camp, is blended with indigenous grapes (Macabeo, Xarel.lo, Parellada) from farmer friends of the region that work organically and who share the same feeling of passion and vision for nature, vinified and aged a minimum of 15 months in stacks at our friend’s Josep LLuís cellar in Sant Sadurní d’Anoia."

The La Vida al Camp Cava is not only delicious, it boasts layers of flavors from bright citrus to a hint of yeasty brioche and smoky minerals and then heads to a supremely satisfying rich, full finish. Oh, and it's less than
