Imported Sparkling Wine

Sparkling wines are produced around the world, and are often referred to by their local name or region – for example Cava from Spain or Prosecco from Italy. Even from France, you can get bubbly that is not Champagne, such as Mousseux and Cremant. All of these are produced with a secondary fermentation process (as opposed to injected CO2), but the specific rules and regulations vary. And they all offer different taste profiles – well worth exploring for the traditional bubbly lover.
