Inspiration & advice

Glasses of Champagne
Bubbles in a glass

How the bubbles are made

Sparkling wines go through a secondary fermentation process where yeast and sugar is introduced to the base wine. The result of this secondary process increases the alcohol level up to 1.5% and creates carbon dioxide in the vessel or bottle, which generates those bubbles.

What is Champagne?

Unlike other sparkling wines, Champagne may only be produced in the Champagne region of north-eastern France where the chalky soils are perfect for growing Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier – the varieties that make up this sophisticated fizz. Producers follow very traditional methods to ensure the exclusivity and premium quality of Champagne. Grapes are picked by hand, not machine, and the wine is aged for a minimum of 18 months. Also, the second fermentation always takes place in the same bottle that the wine is sold in; this is called Méthode Champenoise.
