Missouri’s sparkling wines range from dry to sweet, white to rosé, and can have a light to medium body. Many of the Show Me State sparkling wines utilize Méthode Champenoise, meaning they are made in the same traditional method used in Champagne. This process is completed with a secondary fermentation within the bottle. This fermentation creates carbon dioxide – the fine bubbles we all love. 

Ideal Serving Temperature:

30 to 40 minutes in ice or three hours in the refrigerator. The ideal temperature to serve sparkling wine is around 40 to 45 °F

Food pairings:

Fried Chicken, Havarti cheese, oysters, popcorn, fresh berries
