Bubbly Day is celebrated the first Saturday in June every year. Started in 2017 by Freixenet Cava, it is celebrated by relaxing and imbibing in some sparkling wine or heading out to meet with some friends and having a glass of bubbly at your favorite watering hole.
Sparkling wines are differentiated in people’s minds from Champagne. The biggest difference is that Champagne is only made in the Champagne region of France. No other sparkling wines, or bubbly, can use that name. Similarly, Prosecco and Asti, which are from Italy, and Cava is made in Spain are both well-known varieties of sparkling wines.
The bubbles in sparkling wines are carbon dioxide which is produced naturally during the fermentation process or added in to produce the bubbles in less expensive wines. Ironically Dom Perignon, now known as the creator of Champagne, spent the majority of his life trying to rid wines of those troublesome bubbles.
