spacer1 Product Info: Champagne
Can you imagine a celebration with champagne?
Champagne as it’s described is the drink of royals and aristocrats for centuries (at least since the 1800's). Dom Perignon, the legendary inventor of champagne (maybe he didn't invent it but he sure refined it) supposedly exclaimed at the moment of discovery, " Come quickly, I'm tasting the stars!"  We agree completely.
 
We've put together a nice selection of champagne choices for your event that ranges from good value to the most prestigious available.

OK, so what exactly is champagne? Whether it is called Champagne or sparkling wine, what is really important is how the wine is made. The best Champagnes and sparkling wine are made by méthode champenoise which requires a secondary fermentation in the bottle.
 
This secondary fermentation is accomplished by adding a mixture of sugar and yeast, called the liqueur de tirage, to still wine. This wine is then bottled and capped, with a bottle cap similar to ones found on beer bottles - not a cork. The yeast acts on the sugar and the resulting carbon dioxide remains trapped in the bottle. Quality sparkling wines are usually left on their yeast for several months, even up to six years. At the end of this process the cap is removed and replaced with the traditional cork with wire cage.
 
So what’s the difference between Champagne and Sparkling Wine?
Not much really, all champagnes are sparkling wines, but only sparkling wines made using a specific process in the Champagne region of France can be called champagne.  There are only 86,000 acres available to make champagne - and there will never be any more.  The best sparkling wines are indeed from Champagne! ->>>next
