      What's a sparkling wine?

      Symbolizing celebration, sparkling wine goes through two fermentation processes to give it light bubbles. Champagne is a popular variety of sparkling wine, but not all sparkling wines qualify as Champagne. A high-end sparkling wine, Champagne with a capital "C" must come only from the Champagne region in France. In the United States, California produces various styles of American sparkling wines, ranging from bone dry to sweet. Whether you're celebrating everyday life or a special occasion, try this bubbly, crisp wine that pairs fabulously with caviar and cheeses.

      Styles of this bubbly wine

      Extra-brut variety is the driest style of a sparkler and has no sugar content. For those looking for a bubbly that's dry with just a hint of sweetness, try the brut style. When making brut sparkling wines, winemakers stop the fermentation process just before the yeast consumes the sugar. This results in mellow sweetness while retaining the fresh flavor of the drink. Champagne, the most famed sparkler, is a brut wine, a dry beverage that's mildly sweet. For those wanting a sweet sparkler to enjoy as a dessert wine, try the demi-sec style, which is noticeably sweet with higher sugar content.
