Champagne, Did you know?

Did you know that wine bottled outside of the Champagne Appellation of France con not be called Champagne?  It's true, it has to be called Sparkling Wine.

Champagne (French: [ʃɑ̃.paɲ]English /ˌʃæmˈpn/) is a sparkling wine produced from grapes grown in the Champagne appellation of France following rules that demand secondary fermentation of the wine in the bottle to create carbonation [1]. Some use the term champagne as a generic term for sparkling wine,[2] but many countries, including the United States,[3] reserve the term exclusively for sparkling wines that come from Champagne and are produced under the rules of the Champagne appellation.[4].
