Sparkling wine’s story

Drinking sparkling wine has been a festive tradition for centuries in Europe. Indeed, sparkling wine can first be seen in France in the 16th century when a French Monk started experimenting in Champagne region. A century later, sparkling French wine was a dinner party staple among French and British nobility. The popular drink even made it to the King and Marie-Antoinette’s table! But French winegrowers weren’t the only ones to add bubbles to wine. The 17th century also saw Italians making their own sparkling wine: Prosecco. Most exported sparkling wine in Europe, Prosecco has earned its popularity from being easy to drink and affordable. Later on, European sparkling wines were joined by Cava the Spanish took on the festive drink. The name is said to come from the cave the winegrower dug right after the first bottling as he was so happy with his first bottling.
