California sparkling wine can’t be called Champagne because it isn’t made in that area of France, but we have the same concept, just a different name. Bubbly is one of the top wines for celebrations, sharing a toast, and we have over 30 sparkling wine producers in Slo county alone! The Champagne made in France is made up only of the Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir grapes, but in California we have seen other grapes made into sparkling wine! You can find all the french style classics in our county, but also new and exciting sparkling wines like Viognier, Marsanne, and Grenache.
