Wine becomes sparkling by undergoing a second fermentation. This creates CO2, which makes the bubbles.
In the Champagne method, or ‘méthode traditionelle’, the second fermentation happens in the bottle. The lees (yeast) from the fermentation are then removed through a process called disgorgement.
The ‘tank method’ means the second fermentation happens in a tank and the sparkling wine is then bottled and sealed.
Prosecco can be made in this way.
