The Skinny Fizz is made by Vincente Garcia, known affectionately across Spain as the Godfather of Valencian Cava, as against all odds, Vincente embarked on a David and Goliath style battle when he took on the Penedes producers and the Cava DO in a bid to win the right to produce Cava in his home town of Requena in Valencia.
Vincente was already producing award-winning sparkling wines, but despite their undeniable quality these wines could not be called Cava as they were outside of the original DO.
It cost Vincente almost everything he had and everyone, his own family included, thought he was mad to continue and urged him to stop as he could never win – but Vincente Garcia DID win and is now the owner of Pago de Tharsys, which produces some of Spain’s very best Cava and will always be remembered for the victory that changed the future of Cava.
