POPULAR GRAPES

“To be made into sparkling wine, is to win first prize in the lottery of grapehood.” – Sir Isaac Newton. Alright you got us, Newton didn’t say that, he was much more concerned about apples than grapes. Bet if we’d said it was Oscar Wilde you would’ve bought it though, that’s just the sort of thing he’d come up with.

Many people don’t think too much about the grapes that go into sparkling wines. It’s just Champagne or Prosecco or Cava, they rock and that’s about all we care to bother ourselves with. Don’t write off a bit of esoteric knowledge, you never know what pub quiz you might find yourself in, being questioned about the grapes grown in Champagne...

Traditional Champagne is a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, although you can get single varietals of all these. Blanc de Blanc will typically be 100% Chardonnay. Blanc de Noir will be a blend of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, similar story with rosé Champagne. Whereas if you’re dealing with the Glera grape, you’ve probably got yourself a Prosecco. Cava is typically made with a blend of Macabeo and Parellada, the more you know, right? Because knowledge is power!
