Drinking Cava In The Cold [May. 6th, 2019|01:16 pm]
Tony Grist
I'm sitting at the table wearing a body-warmer and a scarf- as I have been doing for several days now. A couple of days back we had a brief hail storm. It's not helping today that we have Baw and Sith fixing us some internal doors and the back door is open to let them pass in and out.

I'm drinking Cava. Mike and Su brought it with them yesterday to celebrate the purchase of their new car. Some of it got drunk yesterday at lunch- but not very much. And now I have to consume the rest of the bottle before it goes flat. First world problems, eh? Cava is essentially Ch*mp*gn* but is not allowed to say so.

Cava makers in Spain use the champagne method exactly as they do in the champagne region of France. But it's one of those protected things so...
But here in Spain people tend to call our Cava "champán" anyway.

We call it champagne in Britain too- because old habits die hard.
