It is the online course we have developed so that both professionals in the wine industry and wine-lovers, or Cava-lovers more specifically, can learn more about the Cava Denomination of Origin and its Regulatory Board, and the characteristics, peculiarities, uniqueness, quality, and traceability of Cava, as well as understanding how to enjoy this quality Spanish sparkling wine to its fullest.
The training course is designed exclusively for sommeliers, distributors, and importers already familiar with the sector, and is given by Masters of Wine, Master Sommeliers and spokespersons for the Cava D.O.
The aim is that once the training has been completed, participants will be true experts in Cava. They will improve their knowledge and understanding of Cava in their field of work, whether catering, educational institution, specialised shop, food or other area. Training with us means becoming an ambassador for our wines, and growing the community of Cava lovers, as well as helping to share knowledge of this exquisite sparkling wine.
Cava Academy is an exclusive D.O. Cava training course that is accessible and interactive. It is the only official course awarded by the D.O. and, although it has already been offered in person in London, Brussels and New York, this is the first time it has been presented in an online format.
Once the course has been completed and passed, the participant will receive a Cava Trainer Diploma, and will become part of the Cava Academy Alumni community. Thus, any participant who completes the Cava Academy can become a Cava Trainer, with an accredited certificate that demonstrates their comprehensive expertise in the field.
