How would you feel if winemakers in, say, North Korea, produced a really cheap wine and called it “Napa Valley Red? Burn you up, right?
Well, that’s how the makers of real Champagne – that is, bubbly from the French wine region called Champagne – feel about those bottles of cheap sparkling wine on the bottom shelves of U.S. supermarkets call themselves Champagne.
It’s the same with cheap U.S. wines that call themselves Burgundy or Chablis.
Well, the U.S. Champagne Bureau is mad as hell and isn’t going to take it anymore. They’re circulating a petition asking for your support.
