bubbly sparkling wineWhile the Champagne region in France may have a lock on the name, there are many other areas that produce top quality sparkling wines.

In English, they're called sparkling wines. Italians say Prosecco or Spumante ("foaming"). In German it's Sekt.

Besides champagne, France produces quite a few amazing sparkling wines, Vins Mousseux, that are grown and produced in regions other than Champagne. A number of other European counties have some extremely tasty offerings, as well.

In addition, California and New York, Australia, and even the British Isles have begun making quite a few 'sparklers' with their own production of bubbly wines.
