About our sparkling wine and Champagne
What kind of grapes are used to make Champagne?
Three main varieties: Chardonnay, which is a white grape; and Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, which are both red grapes.
What’s the difference between Cava and Prosecco?
Cava comes from Spain and Prosecco is from Italy. Cava’s made using the same method as champagne, with its second fermentation happening in the bottle. With Prosecco, that process happens in stainless steel tanks.
What makes champagne fizzy?
The second fermentation, which we mentioned above, gives Champagne its distinctive fizz. Because fermentation happens inside the bottle, the carbon dioxide it produces can’t escape, turning into tiny bubbles
What is vintage champagne?
Vintage Champagne is made from grapes harvested in one particular year. Non-vintage (NV) Champagne is made by mixing wines from grapes harvested in different years.
Can I age NV champagne?
Yes, you can. All Champagnes can benefit from a bit of ageing – even NV Champagne. Keep it carefully for up to three years, and you’ll find your Champagne has become more mellow, nutty and complex. Definitely worth the wait
