True Colours Cava is from the Penedes region of Spain and is produced using a blend of Macabeo, XAREL.LO, Parellada, and Chardonnay grape varietals. It has an aging process of 14 months.

"Making the decision to bring True Colours Cava into our portfolio was an easy one,” said Oliver MacKinnon III, President of Highland Imports, LLC. “The cava is outstanding and the packaging is brilliant. Selecting GLAAD to be an integral part of our program was also an easy decision. GLAAD embodies the very essence of Alita's efforts to support human rights and social awareness.
