When it comes to the production of sparkling wines there are 2 different methods that result in 2 very different tastes; the Charmat Method and the Classic (or Traditional) Method. Although there are many variations in specific processes most sparkling wines use one of these methods for secondary fermentation.
Named after the Frenchman (Eugène Charmat) who advocated and endorsed this method, this is essentially second fermentation in large, closed, stainless steel, pressurized tanks. In comparison to the classic production of wine this process can take a few weeks from start to finish (although it can take up to 6 months for Cuveè and Prestige). The resulting wine is fruity and fresh and is the perfect way to extract the exquisite taste from the Italian grown grapes in Follador Prosecco!
