And now I get to make them. The final step in making a sparkling wine is called disgorging. You'll be an expert when you watch my videos!
The process begins by chilling the necks of the bottles to freeze the yeast cells.
The next step is to pop the cap, which "disgorges" the frozen yeast.
The third step is to add a "dosage" of the base wine, which is sometimes combined with a little sugar. It replaces the liquid lost in the previous step and adds a touch of sweetness to balance the wine.
Next, it's time for the corks and the wire hoods.
The wine is turned up and down to be sure the dosage is mixed with the rest of the wine.
Isn't it beautiful? This is our Fusión, a blend of Chardonnay, Grenache and Syrah.
Do you know why the bottles get a wash and blow dry?
The bottles are almost ready for the party. In this step they get their foil tops.
The last step is to add the labels. Well, actually, there's one more step - pop the cork and pour a glass of bubbles for yourself and your friends!
