I first discovered the complex process of the traditional Method Champagne at the WSET Wine School; during the course, we learnt that the only difference between still and sparkling wine is the presence of bubbles when the wine is poured into a glass. The bubbles are created by trapping carbon dioxide in the wine. The traditional method Champagne, also known as Méthod Champenoise, is made when the blended fermented grape juice is given a dose of sugar and yeast and then bottled. This is called the second fermentation and happens inside the bottle after this fermentation sediment is produced which is removed in a process known as Remuage and  Disgorgement. Because so much money is invested in the Champagne brand it is clear that this investment must be protected hence the use of Chemicals in the vineyard. One must admire the Organic Champagne Producers for their hard work to keep the vines free from pests and fungus and produce a finished product that is a pure expression of their vineyard and their true Terroir.  Our House Champagne Eclates de Meuliere Extra Brut comes from an excellent producer Jeaunaux Robin from Talus Saint Prix South West of Epernay a region known for producing some of the finest Champagnes. This Champagne has a nose of citrus, lemon, lime vanilla notes and minerality. The bubbles are fine and persistent showing great quality. The finish is refreshing and very precise. This Organic Champagne can also be purchased at The Wine Center Draperstown Co Derry.

Only wine made in the traditional method and from the Champagne region of France may legally have the word Champagne on a sparkling wine label.

Other quality wines such as Cavé may use the traditional method but they are known also within their brand from Spain.

There are other methods used to create sparkling wine eg tank method, transfer method and injection method and prices and quality may vary

The Origins of Biodynamic Farming

by Eugene McKenna August 08, 2019

Biodynamic farming grew out of the deep concerns of a group of farmers in central Europe back in the 1920s. they had noticed an increasing degeneration in seed strains, in many cultivated plants, and their livestock. They approached scientist and philosopher Rudolf Steiner in 1924 seeking some insights and practical ideas to offset this decline.
