Summary

John Murphy investigates the problems facing the makers of Spanish Cava. In terms of exports, it is as big as champagne, and it is made in the same time-consuming way, yet its image has suffered in recent years, and it is now generally thought of as a cheap alternative to the likes of Prosecco. Most Cava comes from Catalonia, a region beset by political problems. So how can it boost its image and re-establish itself as a very special bottle of fizz?
