Calls for greater independence from the Catalan region of Spain have been derided across the rest of the country. This has led to a widespread boycott of products from the area including, perhaps its most famous wine the sparking Cava.

Bloomberg.com
"Nobody is consuming Catalan cava,'' said Daniel Manzano, 43, who started working at a wine shop in Madrid three decades ago. He said this is the first year clients haven't bought cava from Catalonia to toast the holidays. "We don't like it." Cava from the northeastern corner of Spain is the latest casualty of what has become one of the most contentious issues in Spanish politics. Catalonia, which is among the wealthiest of the country's 17 regions and accounts for about 20 percent of the $1 trillion economy, wants to be a ``nation'' within Spain. "
