Champagne Charlie’s BUBBLE 101

• Always sip from a clear glass to enjoy the bubbles
• If there are no bubbles, it’s not worth drinking (it’s gone flat)

Sparkling Wine Break Down:

Sparkling wine is a blanket term – not referring to a specific region as some regions have their own names for their “sparkling wine.”

Prosecco – sparkling wine from the Veneto region of Italy. Generally speaking, Proseccos will be sweeter in taste than Champagnes or Cavas.

Cava –  sparkling wine from Spain (and made with some unique grapes with spicy little names like Macabeu, Parellada, and Xarello.

Champagne – sparkling wine that is specifically produced from the Champagne region of France. • Sparkling produced here in the states uses the term “Sparkling Wine.”

• Cava and Champagne are more alike in structure. If out at a restaurant, and Champagne is not in your budget, order the Cava!

• If there is only a sparkling option (U.S. produced) …good LUCK, that’s like rolling huge set of dice….so ask the waiter or bartender for some direction

• Sparklings are meant to be served in flute but prefer the coupe. • A pressure cork will give your bottle another day or two of freshness.
