So, what is the difference between Sparkling wine and champagne?
Sparkling wine and Champagne are essentially the same thing. It's just that in order for it to be called Champagne, it MUST come from the Champagne region of France--if it doesn't come from that region, then it can only be designated as sparkling wine. So, all champagnes are sparkling wines but not all sparkling wines are not champagne.
There is no difference! All sparkling wines from the region in France, Champagne, are called Champagne. If a sparkling wine does not come from the region Champagne then you have to call it sparkling wine
As we roll into the holiday season, we are preparing to hear more of the **pop-pop-pop** of sparkling wine bottles being opened. A question that comes up often is this: what is the difference between “Sparkling Wine” and “Champagne”? We have the easy and short answer for you, but also a longer education on the winemaking process and different styles of sparkling wine.
Champagne is basically sparkling wine - but that sparkle is added using the champagne-method.
While sparkling wine manufacturers may use the champagne-method - they may not call their wines champagne. By law within the European Union, that is now reserved for sparkling wines made in the champagne region of France. (It would be impossible for any manufacturer to import a foreign-made champagne - no matter how good).
It was the hope of the Champagne manufacturers in France that they would secure the name and the quality of their wine. Personally, I feel that money had too much a part to play in this game. Quality is much of a muchness, given the care that can be brought to bear by educated specialists on a poor wine, to magically turn it into a good or even a great wine. (it is pretty-much impossible to make a bad-wine nowadays).
Also bear in mind that real-champagne is priced as a premium beverage, though it continues to be outshone by the taste of other (allegedly poorer - certainly cheaper) sparkling wines.
Of course, my own preference is Spanish Cava (dry)
Champagne is a specific region in France. If your bubbly wine comes from any place OTHER than Champagne, FR - its just sparkling wine. If its made with these specific grapes, from this specific region, by a specific process - It's Champagne!!
All Champagne's are sparkling wines, but not all sparkling wines are Champagne. Just like, in terms of whiskey - All Bourbons are Whiskey, but not all Whiskey are from Bourbon, KY.
Sparkling wine has no alcohol in it this was made for people who like wine but dont like/cant have alcohol
quality and price is really the only difference.
sparkling implies there is no alcohol.
