The first stage of the Cava Interpretation Centre underway
Work on historic building in Sant Sadurní will finish soon. The museum will be dedicated to the history of cava and the home town of Catalonia’s most renowned drink.
Sant Sadurní (ACN).- The city of Sant Sadurní in Alt Penedès (South-West of Barcelona) charged the company Molinare with creating the first stage of the Cava Interpretation Centre. The new centre suffered important delays because the company assigned to do the job, Lunatus, filed a bankruptcy claim leading to a second round of bids in order to award the project to a new company. The mayor of Sant Sadurní, Joan Amat, wants to open the museum before he retires as mayor in June.
The Cava Interpretation Centre does not intend to present the process of cava manufacture because \u201Cwe can still visit a cave to this effect\u201D as Amat told CNA. This center wants to \u201Csimulate the different periods of the wine\u201D, promote the effects of \u201Caromas\u201D or of \u201Cpressing the grapes\u201D. It will also have a part dedicated to the history of cava, to the city of Sant Sadurní d\u2019Anoia and festivities such as the Phylloxera Festival, held every 7th and 8th of September.
The second stage of this important project will be devoted entirely to the world of cava. Amat wants the Centre to be unique as Sant Sadurní is the most important city for the manufacture of cava. The company Molinare will carry out this project over 10 weeks at a cost of just over 300,000 euros.
