Keeping cava at home…it’s incredible how something so basic can become so difficult. Whether you are a cava expert or seeking assistance, the internet offers a wealth of perspectives on temperature, location, light, maintaining cava at home, and handling open bottles. It’s not always precise since each cava is distinct. 

    There are some oddities that accompany five keys to keeping the cava properly at home.

    Where to store cava at home?

    As the party starts, choosing the ideal venue is tough. Do you know why? Campo Viejo cava must be kept cold, dark, and dry. With numerous temperature fluctuations, the kitchen is out. We have what options? Use a non-humid room or a closet with a spare corner for food storage. In summary, find the coolest area in the home (particularly in summer) without light or humidity.

    How do you preserve cava bottles?

    Bottles must be vertical. During age, they lie horizontally in cellars to precipitate sediments, but following disgorging and bottling, they should be done standing up to avoid stopper taste. Ah. Even if the cap dries up, the wonderful bubbles of carbon dioxide moisten it gently and carefully when we maintain the cava bottles upright.

    How long can we keep the cava at home?

    We can preserve cava at home for a year from purchase (after one or two months of disgorging) without losing its quality. Naturally, our house must be cool, dark, and dry. Disgorgement is the best time to drink mature cava from the cellars. They may be ingested straight without additional parenting time at home.

    How to cool cava?

    Cava should never be frozen. We know you’ve seen it done many times, but the cava’s quick temperature shift in the freezer might impair its characteristics. Although cava should be served cold, the freezer’s cold might be too much and prevent us from enjoying its organoleptic qualities. To properly chill a bottle of cava, refrigerate it at extremely cold temperatures for 24 hours before serving. A water-filled ice bucket will be beneficial while serving it. A tip: salt melts ice and speeds up cold delivery to the bottle.

    And after opening the cava?

    Cava doesn’t need to be consumed immediately due to the idea that putting a spoon backward conserves gas. However, cava can be stored at home for a few days, preserving its qualities and flavour.

    • Maintain ideal temperature.

    First, keep it cool with an ice bucket on the table before serving. The cold slows carbon gas flow, making it harder to get out of the bottle once it touches the air.

    • Our most reliable ally is an airtight cap.

    Hermetic silicone plugs retain carbon dioxide. After serving the glasses, we will put an airtight lid on the bottle to protect the cava’s qualities. If there is cava, we may vertically put the bottle back in the fridge with the hermetic lid on. Better caps will last a few days longer. Every time we remove the cap to serve the cava, a lot of gas escapes (due to pressure loss, thus the noise). The less we open the bottle, the better.

    Cava, also at home

    You can see that drinking cava at home is possible by following a few easy steps. And nothing beats spending a leisurely evening with loved ones or friends after supper; the fizziness of a fine cava enhances lively discussions.
