Freixenet Ice is the new cava, designed to be enjoyed in a ball glass with large ice cubes, in informal meetings with a casual atmosphere, and especially attractive in spring and summer, with the arrival of warm weather. Add a touch of mint or spearmint or a slice of fruit and mix it with your own selection of flavors to enhance its intensity.
The Freixenet Ice cava keeps the essence of the classic Black Cord, but with the addition of Chardonnay to get more intensity and thus balance the effect of the ice. More than a year of aging guarantees this sparkling wine, which draws fine and elegant bubbles on a canvas with notes of peach, flowers, and a nuance of tropical fruits.

How to serve
In 1861 Francesc Sala Ferrés founded Casa Sala, the first wine-exporting company in Sant Sadurní d'Anoia. His son, Joan Sala Tubella, carried the business forward and after the wedding of Joan's daughter Dolors Sala Vivé to Pere Ferrer Bosch, the company entered the cava business. Pere Ferrer Bosch came from the family that owned La Freixeneda, a family estate in existence since the 13th Century and located in the Alt Penedès region. The business grew and the first labels for Freixenet Casa Sala cava appeared. From the beginning, it was decided to concentrate exclusively on the production of cava, a natural sparkling wine, following the method used in the Champagne region (France) since the 18th century. They built their cellars in the town of Sant Sadurní d'Anoia in Catalonia, Spain. The town is located in the heart of the Penedès, a region famous since Roman times for the quality of the wine produced there.More about the Winery
