Sparkling wine - "Classic bottle fermentation" - how do the bubbles get into the bottle?
An interesting experience up close! How the bubbles get into the bottle, some people may have wondered when they opened a bottle of sparkling wine with a loud bang.
A sparkling wine factory in Wintrich provides a vivid answer to this question. There, an old craft is still practised to refine selected wines into sparkling wine. In the vaulted cellars the base wines bottled with the yeast are stored and mature for about 1.5 - 2 years to become sparkling wine. The classic bottle fermentation takes place during this time in each individual bottle. You can experience how the yeast is "shaken" with a lot of feeling on shaking desks to the bottle exit.
The special highlight, however, is when the yeast sprays out of the bottle into the disgorging barrel during disgorging (de-yeasting) and is accompanied by a loud bang.
All of this is explained and shown to the guests during a tour (approx. 60 - 90 minutes depending on your wishes) of the interesting company. Of course it is possible to convince yourself of the quality of the hand-jogged sparkling wine during a tasting. In a small tasting room not only the sparkling wine but also distillates can be tasted. On request, snacks or typical regional dishes can be served.
