Champagne Tips

June 8, 2013


    Let bubbles go to your head

    If we could offer you one tip for the future, it would be to keep a chilled bottle of Champagne handy at all times. Ok… there may be other good advice out there (sunscreen and such), but this is a pearl nonetheless.

    We all pop a bottle for life’s triumphant moments: graduations, weddings, babies, anniversaries… but sparkling wine has this uncanny ability to turn all of life’s little moments into a celebration.

    Fun Facts about Champers!

    Chill Out

    To chill wine super fast, put it in ice water with SALT. Why? Saltwater has a lower freezing temperature and gets colder than regular ice water. 

    Two Reds Make a White

    Champagne is made with three grapes, one white and two red: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. So why isn’t Champagne red? Winemakers immediately take the juice off of the skins. As a result, they don’t take on color.
