TODAY IS CHAMPAGNE DAY
National Champagne Day recognizes the wine that puts the pop in every New Year’s Eve celebration.
Genuine champagne only comes from France’s Champagne region. French law protects where and how it is made. With some exceptions, only Champagne made according to set specifications and within the French region may label their wines using the term “Champagne.” Other foods and beverages fall under this type of protection in France and other parts of the world.
Unlike other wines, Champagne ferments in the bottle allowing the vintner to trap the CO2 in the bottle. The bubbles give Champagne its effervescence.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Pop open a bottle of your favorite champagne. (Remember always to drink responsibly and never drink and drive.)
