The origins of Champagne

Its history begins in France and its origin is attributed to a monk named Dom Pierre Pérignon.

Dom Pérignon was a cellar master who created the basic principles that are still used today to make Champagne, Cava and most existing sparkling wines. This technique of "secondary fermentation" is called "méthode champenoise".

According to history, it is believed that Dom Pérignon did not actually intend to make wine with bubbles, his intention was to innovate at the time and make white wine from red grapes. He spent a long time perfecting this art, avoiding the skins of the grapes, which were responsible for the color in red wine, and blending different wines from diverse vineyards in the region to obtain a product with the best flavor.

The wine and champagne industry has evolved a lot since then, but there are many fun facts about its creation, such as knowing a bottle can contain approximately 49 million bubbles, and the smaller these bubbles are, the better the quality of the champagne. 

You should also know that the wine labeled with the name "champagne" can only be produced in the region of Champagne, in northeastern France. There are wineries that produce this wine with the same method but cannot label it as champagne because it’s not in the region that complies with the Champagne Designation of Origin.
