Juvé y Camps has been a family run company for three generations and has garnered an international reputation. Over two hundred years ago, Joan Juvé Mir, a bold and enterprising vine grower with ideas way ahead of his time, laid the foundations of what would become the family firm.
He began the task which was carried on by his son, Antoni Juvé Escaiola, who, amongst other challenges, had to confront the effects of the terrible phylloxera plague. Advocating replanting, with other leading figures of the Penedes, he led a drive to restore the vineyards and to rebuild the wine production of the region.
A man respected and loved by his contemporaries, his example encouraged his son, Joan Juvé Baqués, to build the family's first winery. He married Teresa Camps Farré, an exceptional woman and an enthusiastic supporter who inspired her husband to launch, in 1921, the first sparkling wine under the "Juvé" brand. It was made in the underground cellars beneath the family home in San Sadurní d'Anoia.
This cava is made with the top-quality must from selected Macabeu, Xarel·lo and Parellada grapes from vineyards in the best classified estates in the Alt Penedès.

|Tasting Notes||It is a golden yellow colour and its fine, effervescent bubbles rise rhythmically, forming pretty streams that create a stable crown.|
Its aroma is pleasant and intense. Initially, the nose evokes clear notes of fleshy fruit and a slightly floral background. After a short time, its complexity increases and slight notes of toast appear.
Its texture in the mouth is very pleasant. Its effervescence is vibrant and friendly, and this, combined with its balanced acidity, gives this cava a lovely creaminess and fresh quality.
Its persistent aroma lingers in the palate for a long time, leaving a lovely memory.
