people saying that USA needs to come up with own name for champagne, most know that wine is named for it location and the type of grape, I think getting too picky here. The champagne I had this year was from Australia and it was awesome.

Thanks to those who pointed out that champagne must be produced in the Champagne region of France. The American sparkling wines on the list are awful and nothing like real champagne.

Great. Now if we can find more things made in the US instead of China we might be in better shape as far as jobs. We need more manuf. jobs in the US to put people to work and manybe end sooo many recalls from cheaply made things from China.

I would never Buy Shampain, but frequently drink Spanish CAVA which at £1,50 a bottle is real value & better than most CHAMPAGNE which is mostly an overpriced con.
