  • Background

    The history of sparkling wine fits neatly into our overarching Chaos Theory narrative, originating as it did (some 500 years ago) when an unintended secondary fermentation came about in wine made by Benedictine monks. Resulting effervescent pressure caused some bottles to pop their corks and others to explode, earning it the moniker the devil’s wine. As the process was understood, embraced, and refined, it gave us Champagne proper along with the broader category of sparkling wines, which many of us now consider divine. Dom Pérignon, who was instrumental in evolving Champagne’s production and standards, famously quipped Come quickly, I am tasting the stars! We invite you to do the same.
