According to information provided by Designation of Origin Cava, total Cava sales for 2017 reached more than 252.5 million bottles, worth some 1.15 billion euros in value.

The amount of Cava sold last year – which represented a 3% increase with respect to the year before – was particularly significant in terms of traditional Cava, which accounted for 219.8 million bottles, with an average aging time of nearly fourteen months.

Exports were also extremely positive for these Spanish sparkling wines last year, growing by 3.2 million bottles to a record-breaking total of 162.2 million bottles sold in the export market.

Germany was the number one destination for Spanish Cava exports last year, and the European Union enjoyed 112.6 million bottles of Cava in 2017 – making it the most important destination for this quality Spanish wine.

2017 was the first year that the new Cava de Paraje Calificado (Single-Estate Cava) classification was taken into account within the category of “Premium Cava,” and the results were extremely favorable, with a 10.7% growth in premium cava sales, or 3.1 million bottles. Exports of these products rose as well, by 5.1%, with Sweden and the Netherlands reporting the most significant growth in terms of destinations (at 63.3% and 49% respectively).

Organic cava sales were also on the rise, growing by nearly 50% in 2017 to 5.9 million bottles, in yet another indication of the growing importance of Spain’s sparkling wine par excellence both here and abroad.
