Hints for the Bubbly

These tips are for a sparkling (champagne type) wine.

Always ensure sparkling wine is well-chilled to 50F before opening it. Never put it in the freezer unless you want to be seeing stars not drinking them. The cold temperature and the pressure in the bottle will easily explode the bottle. Please don’t try it. It is probably best to keep it in the fridge for about an hour.

Do not shake the bottle before opening it unless you are a race car winner. It could hurt.

Remember to TURN the bottle not the cork. The pressure in the bottle will push out the cork. It should be a whispered ‘sigh’ not a pop. Enjoy and drink responsibly.
