“Summer is quickly descending upon us and proves once again to be one of the busiest times for wedding receptions. Consequently, champagne and sparkling wines sales increase,” said Matthew Murphy, President of Murphy Distributors in Branford, CT.

“As we shift our mindsets to crisp whites , roses and sparkling wines, Bohigas’s Brut Reserva Cava stands out as a sparkling wine with mass appeal,” he added. A good wedding wine cannot be too extreme. The pleasant and refreshing Bohigas Brut Cava Reserva  is easy to drink, is more interesting than Prosecco and a worthy alternative to Champagne—and costing about a third less per bottle,” said Murphy.

The Bohigas family has been making wine from their estates in Catalunya (about 45 miles west of Barcelona) since 1290. The father/daughter team has 150 hectares under vine, on which they grow a number of indigenous re
d and white varietals, including Xarel-lo, Macabeo and Parellada, which are used to make their Cavas.

Their Brut Reserva is a relatively small production, with only 6,000 cases made per year. Harvest of the grapes is done in the evening to take advantage of the cool temperatures. The first fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats. The wine is then bottled along with yeast and some added sugar (called dosage, a practice typical in making sparkling wines) for the second fermentation which takes place in the bottle in their underground cellar, where the wine stays for 24 months before riddling and disgorgement.

In the glass you’ll find a pale yellow color with subtle green and golden hues. This zesty but soft and just slightly off-dry Spanish cava, is marked by a bright green-apple note. Slightly subdued, the bouquet has subtle hints of lemon and lime zest, crushed flower and yeast. On the palate you’ll find a surprisingly dense wine with constant effervescence, tight bubbles framed by moderate acidity and subtle minerality making the wine very food friendly.


“The Bohigas family shares our passion for providing the best products in the industry, taking pride in all they do. It is the higher standard they project that has set them apart from other wineries. It is also what brings us together. Murphy Distributors shares the passion for having the highest standards in the industry. We’re not just another distributor; we represent something different as well, and that is exceptional brands and branding.”  Murphy added.

” Bohigas Brut Cava Reserva is synonymous with our rapidly developing reputation to place and grow supplier brands in the Connecticut market,” Murphy said.  “We are currently delivering to retailers, restaurants and wedding venues throughout the State of Connecticut.”
