Do you know? Champagnes are sparkling wines that originated and were produced in the champagne region of France.
This production under the rules of appellation demands special practices, sourcing grapes exclusively from designated places within it. And also secondary fermentation of the wine in the bottle causes fermentation.
One of the interesting facts about Champagne is while all champagnes are sparkling wines, not all sparkling wines are champagnes.
According to research reports, Nigeria is the third biggest champagne market in Africa and the 32nd in the world. Although people find it surprising that Nigeria came third in the rankings because of the low income of over 80% of the population but the country has an extremely extravagant elite. The drink which is associated with luxury has been the go-to drink for celebrations at parties, weddings, and corporate events.
