What sets Sparkling wine apart? Sparkling wine incorporates five senses, rather than the usual four. Sound is very important. Imagine cracking open a bottle without the hiss or pop, or without hearing the bubbles moving up through the glass and into your mouth. The texture is equally important. The bubbles give a tingling sensation which adds to the sensation of sparkling wines.
The aesthetics of sparkling wine is key, from the array of exciting bottle designs to towers of glasses where the fizz is poured. Certain Champagne brands patent colours and bottle shapes which adds to the exclusivity of the product. Packaging extends to bags, covers and miscellaneous items that help to sell the final wine.
There is nothing quite like sparkling wine but there are many differences between the processes that produce each style. From Champagne to Asti there is a style to suit all palates.
