The sparkling cava is inspired by Antoni Gaudí Casa Mila, showcased in the bottle design. The winery, founded in 1875 by a local family, utilizes its low clay soil and high limestone content to grow a playful form of grape with distinct tasting notes known to the region. Arriving in the United States for the first time in 2017, the brut is a super-premium offering made with all-natural varietals that bottle the intense passions of Spain. Pata Negra Brut Rosé is made using the Traditional method used by French and premium California producers.
