Sparkling Wines

Sparkling wines have a unique identity among the various wine categories. As their name suggests, they’re carbonated, which creates an interesting, compelling texture and combination of flavors – as well as a familiar and cheerful “pop” when a bottle of Champagne is uncorked. There are many stories about how sparkling wine came to be, but the most important thing to know is that there are two main production methods – the Champagne method and the Charmat-Martinotti method, also known as Metodo Italiano.

Sparkling wines are incredibly popular today, being a staple purchase for many different social events and special occasions. In particular, you can expect most holidays to feature at least one bottle of these playful blends, and they’re often one of the first alcoholic beverages a person tries in their life. As such, they are a potent catalyst for creating long-lasting positive memories as early as one’s teenage years, and an easy way to develop a taste in fine wine from a young age. The flavor of a great sparkling wine is so lush, refreshing, and smooth; it goes down like soda water while tasting infinitely sweeter. Champagne bottles get emptied in record time as every guest indulges in a healthy dose, unable to stop before they run out. The fizzy texture massages and arouses your tastebuds in a way not many luxurious drinks can offer, bringing to mind foamy waves of azure sea water, or intense rapids.

If you’ve ever wondered what true love tastes like, sparkling wines offer a pretty good idea of what to expect. You can pick from a variety of flavors, each offering a different blend of dryness and sweetness. We highly recommend Champagne, Cava, and Prosecco if you’re looking to dip your tongue in the finest sparklers on the market. Pair them with marinated, roasted chicken, or a similar dish and experience a heavenly pleasure.
