Champagne, sparkling wine, Prosecco

Champagne is a sparkling wine made from grapes that are harvested according to strict rules in the Champagne (French: la Champagne) wine-growing region in France. In many parts of the world it is considered the most festive of all drinks.

Sparkling wine is the generic term for bottled wine-containing drinks that are under pressure due to their carbon dioxide content. The excess pressure caused by the dissolved carbon dioxide must be at least 3 bar at 20 ° C.
