Known as secondary fermentation, this traditional technique is easy to master with our sparkling wine kit. Just choose your base wine, from Chardonnay or pinot noir to a delicate rose-the kit includes everything else you'll need. Simply pour wine into Champagne bottles, blend with a proofed batch of tirage (yeast starter), then cork the bottles, fasten the wire hoods and affix the temperature strips.
