You just can’t beat Champagne!

  |   News

There’s nothing like champagne to give you a real kick – and we sell the wonderful Joseph Perrier Cuvée Royale Brut by the bottle AND by the glass! We also sell Bollinger Special Cuvée Brut by the bottle.
Wine has been produced in the Champagne region for over a thousand years, at a cool latitude of 49 degrees north, made mainly from cool climate grapes including Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. Historically, cold winters prematurely halted fermentation leaving dormant yeast cells and when the warmth of spring came along fermentation re-started producing carbon dioxide that escaped in the form of a bubble.


The Benedictine monk, Dom Perignon, was originally given the task to alleviate this wine, ‘The Devil’s Wine’ of its bubbles as they broke the then thin and delicate glass. But, thanks to the production of sturdier English glass, this didn’t happen and we are able to enjoy a cold glass of Champagne to this day!
