Sparkling wine in the USA has a long and storied history. Early settlers to the New World brought with them the grape vines that would eventually become the basis for many of today’s most popular wines. Among these was the sparkling wine known as champagne, synonymous with luxury and wealth.
Today, American sparkling wine is enjoyed by people from all walks of life, for a celebration or simply because the sun is shining.
These wines can be made from any type of grape, red, white, or a combination of both, and can be produced using a variety of methods, each wine having its own unique flavour and characteristics. Made in a similar way to Champagne, the addition of a secondary fermentation process that takes place in the bottle, results in a wine that is full of bubbles and has a characteristic taste that is different from other wines.
The most common type is brut, which is dry and bubbly. Extra dry sparkling wine is slightly sweeter than brut, while demi-sec is even sweeter. No matter what your taste, there’s an American sparkling wine that’s sure to please. So if you’re looking for a special occasion drink, be sure to give one of these delicious wines a try.
