10 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Champagne

Nothing says glamour quite like a bubbly glass of Champagne, but behind that fizz are some fun facts we bet you didn't know.

Nothing says glamour quite like a bubbly glass of Champagne, but behind that fizz are some fun facts we bet you didn’t know. No beverage is capable of eliciting sheer joy the way that Champagne can. The mere sound of a cork gently popping can turn the heads of curious (and envious) diners at every other table in the restaurant. And who can help but bubble over with excitement at seeing a server balancing a flute-filled tray at an opening or event? The beloved sparkling wine is a go-to for life’s special celebrations—big and small—and it’s also a deft option to pair with your favorite dishes. Here is a magnum’s worth of cool things to know about everyone’s favorite effervescent elixir, from 1 to 10.

Nothing feels like Champagne!

1 of 10. It’s Not Actually Champagne Unless It Comes From This Region

France’s Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée (AOC) strictly regulates the production of the region’s wines, from permitted grapes to maximum vineyard yields to cellar techniques. Only bottles produced in this region under these regulations have the right to be labeled as Champagne—unless they fall into a loophole in the Treaty of Versailles that ended World War I. Article 275 was meant to solve global disputes about wine and spirits place names—but the U.S. never ratified it. That, coupled with a compromise on a 2005 agreement between the U.S. and E.U. easing restrictions on wine trade, means that American producers like KorbelAndre, and Cook’s, who had been calling their sparkling wines “Champagne” before the agreement, can continue to do so, much to the chagrin of French Champagne winemakers.
