Champagne is delicious; we love its flavour, we love its fizz. Champagne’s association with success, partying and fun are as ingrained in the wine as the bubbles themselves. As the godfather of champagne, Dom Perignon, famously declared: ‘Brothers, I’m drinking stars’.
But there’s more to fizz than just champagne. Prosecco’s meteoric rise in popularity has opened up our taste buds to other sparkling wines: from the glacial hills of Treviso, the lava slopes of Mount Etna, rural Brazil to the more genteel South Downs of England, the choice is vast.
There has never been a better time to enjoy a glass of bubbly.
