Looking for champagne, cava, prosecco or simply some sparkling wine? Take a tour of sparkling wines from different European regions with this simple guide:

Sparkling wine refers to any wine with bubbles. In order for these wines to get their bubbles they must go through a second fermentation where the winemakers add a mixture of yeast and sugars. In turn, the combination of yeast and sugars produce carbon dioxide bubbles.

  •  Champagne can only come from the Champagne region of north-eastern France and most commonly uses chardonnay, pinot noir and/or meunier grapes.
  • Cava comes from Spain and is made with native grapes such as parellada and xarel-lo.  Cava can also be made from chardonnay and pinot noir grapes. 
  • Prosecco comes from the Veneto region of north-eastern Italy and is made with a grape called glera.
  • Brut means dry, raw or unrefined. If you are in search of a dry-tasting sparkling wine, go for the Brut.
