National Champagne Day
A decadent drink has found its way into the world, and it is often regarded as the best beverage to bring to an important event. It is often champagne that is used to celebrate important events, such as a retirement ceremony, wedding, job promotion or graduation. But is it really Champagne? It could be a sparkling white wine which is definitely not the same thing. What is the difference? What’s the difference? One monk from Champagne, France, who was nearly blind, discovered the process of wine fermentation. It is related to the weather, so it seemed like a mistake at first, but it proved to be delicious. This monk was named Dom Pierre Perignon in 1697. Champagne is still named after him. Christopher Merrett, a scientist, wrote down the process of adding sugar to wine to make bubbles. It doesn’t matter who gets credit for it; it’s a wonderful addition that the whole world can enjoy. Although they use the term champagne a lot, it is not the bland sparkling white wine that many people mistakenly call champagne. The four types of champagne on the market have been produced following very strict standards. There are four types of champagne. They differ by the region they are from and the grapes used in the manufacturing process. The types of grapes that champagne makers use will typically include Pinot noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Meunier varieties in their blends. Pinot Gris and Petit Meslie are two other options. They all come from France’s Champagne region. Sometimes, the aging process can give champagne a weird aroma, with hints of toast, cheese-rind, or brioche. If you are a champagne lover, or believe that you are, then this is the day to go out and get the real thing. These are some ideas to get involved and share the day with others.
