Sant Sadurní d'Anoia is a municipality in the comarca of the Alt Penedès in Spain, and the centre of production of a sparkling wine known as cava. It is situated in the north-east of the Penedès Depression at the confluence of the Avernó river and the Anoia river. It is served by the A-7 autopista and the RENFE railway line (R4) that connect Barcelona with Manresa and El Vendrell.

The noucentista buildings of the Codorníu cava house on the edge of the town were designed by Josep Puig i Cadafalch.
