Cava is often dismissed as a poor cousin of Champagne and currently fashionable Prosecco, but Camino’s main man Richard Bigg is challenging these fizzy perceptions at London’s first stand-alone bar dedicated to the pride of Catalonia. In the air-conditioned comfort of a chic sangria-toned City cellar, you can discover distinguished producers such as Recaredo, Gramona, Albert de Vilarnau and Juvé y Camps, whose four-grape blend, 2008 Reserva de la Familia Brut Nature, trounces many entry-level Champagnes. Biodynamic variants, plenty by the glass and stellar gran reservas such as voluptuous 2007 Kripta Brut Nature Agusti Torello ensure that you’ll broaden your horizons. Cocktails, wines from other Spanish regions, tapas, charcuterie, Ibérico ham and steak with manchego shavings – as well as ‘cava to go’ – are further reasons to visit.
