Fun Facts About wine


A bottle of champagne has around 49 million bubbles! The characteristic bubbles that grace all champagnes are formed during a second fermentation process, because of the addition of sugar and yeast. The two ingredients react to form carbon dioxide and this creates millions of bubbles trapped in a very small space.


The oldest vines planted in Bordeaux are at least 200 years old. The vines are said to have been planted just after the French Revolution. The city of Bordeaux is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Producing well upwards of 500,000 bottles annually Bordeaux is the largest producer of high-end wines.


The Chianti district is known as the “Heart of Tuscany." Authentic Chianti is made from 80% Sangiovese grapes. Chianti was historically associated with a squat bottle enclosed in a straw basket, called a fiasco but they are only used by a few winemakers nowadays. Most Chianti is now bottled in more standard shaped wine bottles.
