Sparkling wine is a wine with significant levels of carbon dioxide in it making it fizzy. The carbon dioxide may result from natural fermentation, either in a bottle, as with the méthode champenoise, in a large tank designed to withstand the pressures involved (as in the Charmat process), or as a result of carbon dioxide injection.
Champagne is the crème de la crème of Sparkling Wines and because of its prestige, many people assume that all sparkling wine is in fact Champagne. Although Sparkling Wine and Champagne are similar in nature, they are not, in fact, the same. Sparkling Wine is deemed as Champagne only if it comes from the wine-producing Champagne region of France, using only Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay grapes.
Other than Champagne, there are many other varieties of Sparkling Wine such as Italian Prosecco and Spanish Cava. Sparkling Wine is available in Brut, which is very dry, Demi-Sec, which is dry but a little fruitier than Brut and Doux which is a much sweeter beverage.
