Where is it from?
Champagne, the world’s most famous type of wine and wine region, is synonymous with luxury, quality and celebration. Many drinkers may find it surprising that it is notoriously difficult to grow grapes in Champagne – the mean annual temperature is just over 10˚C!
But with efforts from Benedictine monks, local winemakers, and English scientists, craftsmen and merchants, Champagne has developed into a world-renowned fine wine region in its signature fizzy, fresh, yet creamy style.
Today, there are over 15,000 growers and 300 Champagne houses, and its global market reach is still expanding. The region is also seeing exciting new trends as small grower-producers such as Jacque Selosse and Ulysse Collin continue to experiment with winemaking techniques previously unseen in Champagne.
