You can have any color as long as it’s black.” – Henry Ford

Is cava the new black? It is for the Wine Harlots. Freixenet Cordon Negro Brut Cava is a fresh and fun sparkler. With its distinctive black bottle, it’s a classic. Affordable and available pretty much anywhere alcohol is sold – as reliable and dependable as your Little Black Dress – the go-to beverage when you don’t want to over think your drink. The Freixenet Cordon Negro is crisp and bright with flavors of apple and citrus. Perfect pairing? Try an upscale fish and chips — Tempura Cod with Japanese Sweet Potato Fries, the acidity in the cava is amazing at cutting through the oil of the fish and chips. The music match? It’s “Black Celebration” by Depeche Mode from the album of the same name. Have an everyday celebration with basic black – with Freixenet Cordon Negro in your glass.
