Home Cava Institut


Represent and defend the interests of Cava wineries and contribute with our activities to the development of the Cava industry, its image, tradition and prestige.



The history of the Cava Institut begins in 1946, with the constitution of what was then “Unión de Criadores y Elaboradores de Vinos Espumosos” (UCEVE) which associated the sparkling wine producers of Sant Sadurní d’Anoia to defend their interests, look after the quality of their products and boost Cava consumption. Though, UCEVE’s statutes date from that year, there are records of associative activity prior to that date.

With the incorporation of Spain to the European Union in 1986 and the creation of a Cava Denomination of Origin, the Cava Institut was founded in 1991 as a continuation as a continuation of UCEVE, taking on from that moment the functions of representing and defending the sector, promoting Cava, its image, tradition and prestige.
