Sant Sadurní d’Anoia (the Cava capital)

It has its origins in the ancient parish of Sant Sadurni de Subirats according to the registers of the year 1080. It was part of the barony of Subirats in the hands of noble families until 1493 when it was taken over by the crown and in 1764 obtained its independence as a municipality.

Towards the end of the 19th Century there came about a veritable revolution in agriculture through which the area turned to wine growing and in 1872 came the first bottles of Cava and since the beginning of the 20th century Cava has become the main industry of the local economy.

Today the town has a population of 12,000 inhabitants; there are more than 80 producers of Cava who make 90% of the production of Cava in Spain and export to all continents
