A bottle of bubbly can be a wonderfully
indulgent treat for any occasion.
If Bordeaux produces the best fine red wines in the world, then Champagne certainly takes pole position in the world of fizz. However, sparkling wines from across the world, including the UK, are increasing steadily in quality and popularity.
The reason that Champagne is such a special region is down to geographical location and long tradition. Situated to the east of Paris, the soil, topography and climate have a huge influence on the quality of the grapes. Vineyards in England have been producing sparkling wines over the past decade which have been compared in quality to champagne, many attribute this comparison to chalky soil and growing conditions similar to that found in Champagne.
