Champagne & Sparkling Wine
Produced around the world, sparkling wines are often referred to by their local name or the region they originated from. Due to the secondary fermentation during the sparkling wine production, it leads to a significant rise in levels of carbon dioxide, thus making the sparkling wine fizzy and exhibit the characteristic bubbles. Majority of the sparkling wines are blends of grape varieties, vintages and vineyards, in addition to varietal sparkling wines. While most sparkling wines are white and rosé, red sparkling wines have also been produced.
The most well-known and popular example of a sparkling wine is champagne, produced exclusively in France’s Champagne region and under the rules of the appellation. In almost all Champagne, primarily the grapes Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are used in the production. Today, champagne is not only reserved for festive occasions and celebrations, but also to enhance any ordinary experience from shopping to socialising.
