Feb 22, 2024

Cavas Hill, located in Penedès and belonging to the wine group Ferrer Wines, is pleased to announce the recent acquisition of the JAS (Japanese Agriculture Standards) organic seal awarded by CAAE.

The JAS certification, granted by CAAE, the leading entity in organic product certification, opens the doors to the prosperous and demanding Japanese market and consolidates Cavas Hill as a pioneer in this recognition. This achievement makes the winery the first in the DO Cava to receive the JAS certification, positioning it as a benchmark in the export of organic cavas to Japan.

The cavas produced by Cavas Hill, which typically contain the native varieties Macabeo, Parellada, and Xarel·lo, stand out for their high quality standards from vineyard to glass. They are versatile cavas that harmonize perfectly with various dishes, from sushi and oysters to fish and meats.

Cavas Hill, committed to sustainability for years, already had the European Organic Certification. This certification supports that many of its cavas have been produced and elaborated following strict organic agriculture standards, with comprehensive control at every stage of production, from harvest to commercialization.

Pedro Ferrer Noguer, President of Cavas Hill and the wine and alcoholic beverage distribution group Ferrer Wines, shares his satisfaction: “It is an honor to receive the JAS certification, reflecting our firm commitment to sustainability and to the demanding Japanese market. Being respectful and consistent with the land, vineyards, and the environment is paramount to us.” He also highlights that the acclaimed Col·leció Privada 2020, Panot Gaudí Pinot Noir, and Cuvée 1887, which already have the European Union organic certification, are productions that express the typicality of cava and are benchmarks for their high quality.

With this certification, Cavas Hill is poised to captivate Japanese palates, bringing the ecological excellence of the winery to a burgeoning market that values the quality and authenticity of Spanish products.
