Sparkling Wine brands

Sparkling wine is a wine with significant levels of carbon dioxide in it, making it fizzy.

The sparkling quality, of sparkling wine, comes from its carbon dioxide content and may be the result of natural fermentation, either in a bottle, as with the traditional method, in a large tank designed to withstand the pressures involved.

In most countries the word “Champagne” is reserved only for the specific type of sparkling wine from the Champagne region of France.

Sparkling wines are also produced in other countries around the world. These sparkling wines are often referred to by their local name or region, such as  Cava from Spain and Asti from Italy (the generic Italian term for sparkling wine being Spumante).
