Champagne is really hard to make. There are rules and regulations and specific grapes and soil requirements and is completely region specific and more that goes into each bottle that it’s impressive that even one bottle gets popped. In this video from the Science Channel, we get to see how Bollinger makes its champagne. It marries the old fashioned methods formed over hundreds of years of bubbly creation with impressive modern machinery. Delicious!
I used to work at a champagne winery in Healdburg, CA during harvest to make money for school. It was a lot of hard work, but made a lot of money doing do. I did harvest, worked on the production line and worked with the rest of the “cellar rats” where the fermentation took place.
There’s a nice mix of craftmanship and science put together.
